TWD - Fluted Carrot Orange Cake



For Tuesdays with Dorie this week, our  recipe is Fluted Carrot Tangerine Cake.  However, Dorie gave us the option of subbing oranges for the tangerines, which I did.

This cake is very simple to make, and has the flavours of carrots, orange and ginger.  There is also an optional glaze, but I skipped it and served my cake plain with a dollop of yoghurt on the side instead.


This cake was simple and delicious.  It was definitely a winner for me.

To see what the other bakers thought of this cake, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

It looks really nice! I love carrot cake and orange cake so I'd love this. I think it might also be good with cream cheese icing too :)

Hmmm, I didn't make this one, but I have tangerines in the fridge....

Great idea to serve with yoghurt! I can totally see some vanilla Greek yoghurt complementing this. Yum!

Ginger is a real favourite around here at Christmas and I have not really paired it with orange. I shall have to do this next as your cake looks delicious.

I used oranges too, since I am in Florida. This was so delicious, wasn't it?

It's such a sunny looking cake and it sounds like it tastes as good as it looks.

This was a definite winner in our house. The combination of ingredients was absolutely perfect together.

The ginger was not obvious in my cake-next time I need to add more. The cake was great on its own without the glaze but serving it with yogurt sounds great!

I am looking forward to this cake, everyone seems to like it. The squares a rich and require a bit more baking. Get your butter out:)

I loved this one - just caught up on it today on the blog. I used glaze, but I think I'd be equally happy with it as you served it. Yours looks perfect!
