Carrot loaf cake with candied orange peel and pecans

Super easy and tasty carrot cake for Easter!
Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 45 mins


  • 125 g flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 125 ml vegetable oil
  • 100 g white sugar
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 150 g finely grated carrot
  • 60 g chopped pecans
  • 40 g candied orange peel
  • 60 g cream cheese
  • 60 g mascarpone
  • 60 g powdered sugar
  • 60 g whipped cream


  • Preheat the oven to 175 degrees. Gently oil a loaf cake tin, then put baking paper in it (so it moves less) and oil it as well.
  • Drizzle over the flour with baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  • In another bowl, mix the oil with sugar and vanilla, then add the eggs one at a time. Stir the flour into the oily mixture in two portions, then add the carrot, 50 g pecans and 30 g candied oranges as well.
  • Pour the batter into the lined mould and bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes.
  • Place on a rack, cool for 15-20 minutes in the form, then cover and allow to cool completely.
  • While the dough cools, prepare the cream. Mix the cream cheese, mascarpone and icing sugar. Beat the cream (I usually beat more and measure 60 g out of it), then a small portion first, and finally the rest into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Apply the cream to the cookie and sprinkle with chopped pecans and candied oranges.
