Our Tiramisu Chocolate Carrot Cake is a delicious and fun take on the usual Valentine’s Day dessert so loved around the world. I’ve left alcohol out of the recipe, but if you like you could spoon a little marsala and rum over the warm cake when it’s fresh from the oven, so it soaks in.

Makes one 6” or 7” round cake.


1. Butter the inside of a 6” or 7" round deep cake tin. Place a disk of non-stick paper in the bottom.

2. Sift together the dry ingredients.

3. In a large mixing bowl beat together the sweet mixture ingredients one at a time. Beat well before adding the next ingredient.

4. Stir in the coffee, carrots and chocolate.

5. Beat the egg white to soft peaks.

6. Fold the sifted dry ingredients in with the sweet mixture evenly but lightly. Then fold in the whisked egg white.

7. Spoon the mixture into the tin, it will be quite liquid, then bake at 160C for about 50 minutes or until a skewer poked in comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin.

8. Remove from the tin. Top with ½ batch cream cheese frosting flavoured with vanilla, and dust with cocoa.
