What’s Your Favorite Carrot Cake Recipe

Over the years I’ve made a dozen versions of this classic American cake, the one I am currently mulling over has  a lime mascarpone icing and is by Jamie Oliver….and then it occurred to me that I should ask you, my dear Urbanfoodguy reader what is your favorite Carrot cake recipe and would you share it here?

The only hitch is I need it by Thursday.

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note: urbanfoodguy@gmail.com

    Hey Urbanfoodguy,
    My favourite carrot cake recipe is Hawaiian Carrot Cake with Coconut Icing. You can find it online at the LCBO Food and Drink Magazine site. It is from the Spring 2011 issue. You will love it.
    P.S. I visited the campus of York U. last week – what a stroll down memory lane! The doors to Atkinson Studio were locked but I fondly remembered the many hours spent in there learning our “craft”. Red. Hot. Seven. LOL
