Carrot Cake with Mascarpone Frosting

Carrot cakes. They´re popular for a few years by now, but they got in my kitchen just now. Since I think carrot is a part of spring, I chose this Carrot Cake with Mascarpone Frosting as the first this year´s blog Easter recipe. Easter is around the corner, one won´t even notice. This carrot cake is enough even for incoming visitors since it is baked in a quite large baking pan. Thanks to 500 g of carrot, the cake is really juicy, almost like a brownie. Since there is also ginger, cinnamon, walnuts and lemon juice, you will not taste just carrot so even carrot haters will eat it. For example my boyfriend, who doesn´t like carrot, ate it and didn´t want to believe me that there really was carrot. As I said, they won´t notice it. Add mascarpone and whipped cream frosting and you will get a truly delicious spring dessert.
