Description

Carrot cake.

We make two layers of rich, carrot cake sponge. We fill it with grated carrots and mixed nuts, together with a cream-cheese flavoured topping.

Our recipe consists of only the best and finely-sourced ingredients.

Who invented Carrot cake?

The first origins are in sixteenth century England when sugar and sweeteners were so expensive that many chefs added carrots to their puddings instead.

Antoine Beauvilliers is the actual inventor of the carrot cake. Beauvilliers was the former chef to the last King of France, Louis XVI.

He created a recipe for a ‘Gateau de Carottes’ which was then heavily distributed and even translated into English.

The cake grew in popularity over the years – and has really hit its peak in the last 40 years or so. Carrot cakes were also very popular in the UK during World War Two when sugar was rationed by the government, and carrots were used as a substitute for cakes.
