Thank you so much for this recipe! :)

I've been meaning to bake a carrot cake for a while now because I've never tried it before (it's pretty much unknown where I come from). Your cake sounds and looks really great and given that I'm well stocked on apples at the moment, I'm going to give it a try very soon. Yummy!

This looks delish!
I can see where the lime gives it a little zip.

Interesting Combination of carrot and apple. what would be it's tastes? Can't wait to make one. Thanks for sharing


I've still never made a carrot cake - it never used to be the English cake of choice when I was growing up - must be an American import! The sickly icing has always put me off, but I'll have a go at your recipe and see if I can convincce the kids to try it!


My grandmother made carrot cake for me for my birthday every year -- and for many years after her death, I made it on her birthday. But somehow I managed to lose 'our' recipe and so am in pursuit of a new one. I love the addition of apples, also the lime in the icing, it's usually soooo sweet. Lovely, Johanna!


This looks delicious! I really like the sound of the lime and cream cheese frosting. What a lovely combination of tastes!


Hi Johanna, I waited for your new recipe for days. There it is! Thank you. I hope you are well.

That looks great! Carrot cake is one of my favourite cake's ever! Never tried it with apple before but thinking about it, I reckon it will work really well.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Wow, this looks great. My 6 year old says he like Apple and if I could get him to help make this, he might even eat it. If he decides not to try it... all the more for me!!


This cake is very yummy :) I made it on saturday and it's still good. Bf asked me if I'm making a cake just for myself and I proudly said yes :D


Carrot cake has to be one of my all time favourite things. This one looks fabulous and I love the idea of adding apple to it. It looks so moist and yummy


sounds wonderful - I love carrot cake but have no delusions about healthiness - but it is a great way to use up carrots - and apples would give some extra flavour and moistness


that looks and sounds just wonderful! I made a similar cake couple of days ago: instead of carrots and apples used pumpkin and soft cheese with orange juice for frosting:)


good on you!!! yes, the cake is phantistic as it keeps for ages... especially if you dont have a large family (or are really good at hiding it ;-))

take care



I just love the look of this carrot cake recipe, especially as I have just got a Thermomix. I have been converting family favorites to TM and you have just saved me a lot of time. Thank you very much.

PS. I live in Australia so will probably wait 3 months for the glut of apples.


Hi. I have to say that I agree with you about Carrot Cake in the UK. I LOVE carrot cake and order it whenever I can but it is always disappointing. I have an American recipe for carrot cake which is absolutely fantastic (complete with cream cheese frosting) but it has so much oil in it that I don't like to make it very often. Your recipe, with only 150 g butter seems to me to be much healthier. I look forward to making it. Thank you!!


yum yum. I'll definitely try this.


Carrot cake is always a favourite in my house. I would never have thought about using apples in the cake mix. A slice of your cake would be very welcome!!!

If anyone would please convert this recipe for me in US measurements, I would love them forever!
It just doesn't come out correctly, when I do them on my charts, and I don't want to mess it up....I am dying to make this cake!
Thank you! Stacey


This looks divine. I can't wait to give this one a try. :)
