Classic Carrot Cake Recipe | Cupcake Jemma

Can you get more Classic than a Carrot Cake? This is the perfect recipe for all you beginner bakers out there and an absolute must for your baking repertoire. This Carrot Cake recipe is moist, flavorful and ridiculously more-ish topped off with a tangy Cream Cheese icing making it the perfect accompaniment to this Carrot Cake. If you have the time to wait I recommend you bake it the day before you serve it to let the sponge relax and the flavours mature.
