Whole Wheat Carrot Cake with Raspberries and Orange Curd @JennyHatch 31st Anniversary This Week!

Paul and I are celebrating our 31st anniversary today. Our wedding cake was spice with raisins so…

Tonight we baked a whole wheat carrot cake and garnished it with raspberries, oranges, and a curd made with oranges and eggs. I whipped up a buttercream frosting using yogurt. YUMMY!!!

Recipe:

2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
2 Cups White Flour
1 Cup Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
Sift dry ingredients

Mix dry ingredients into the wet…

1/2 C melted Butter
1 small can pineapple w/juice
1 grated carrot
Handful of raisins
Handful of craisins
2 eggs

Bake 350 degrees 45 minutes in a well oiled 9 inch round cake pan.

Let cool then carefully cut in half

(The cake was crumbly so it totally fell apart)

Pour half a batch of orange curd in the middle.

Paste some buttercream on top and garnish with fresh raspberries and oranges.

Use the curd as a sauce for extra yummyness.

Curd:

Orange zest from one orange
6 egg yolks
Juice from two oranges
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
(Paul found the recipe here: https://www.lemontreedwelling.com/homemade-orange-curd/ )

Simmer on stove until slow boil stirring constantly.

Let cool completely while you and hubby play a game of checkers.

Buttercream:

1 stick softened butter
Pinch salt
2 Cups powdered sugar
1/4 C Plain Greek Yogurt
Whip
