Hey, cool blog! We also have another carrot cake recipe for the thermomix. http://sarahcarlos.wordpress.com/2008/07/29/spanish-carrot-cake/ Yours looks very good though. We should try to make it muffing style....

Hi Brazen,

I've just made the original recipe in the Thermomix and it worked brilliantly! Thanks!
I've converted your cup measurements to grams:
170g oil
130g sugar (I use only 2/3 cup)
200g plain flour

Keep 'em coming!
