Bolo de cenoura (Brazilian carrot cake)

Bolo de cenoura (Brazilian carrot cake)

Although the ingredients might look similar, this traditional Brazilian carrot cake differs vastly from the traditional carrot cake because the raw carrots are puréed in a blender resulting in a smoother, much lighter sponge. Topping with a dark chocolate glaze might seem strange, but it is the traditional topping and the flavours work perfectly.

You will need a 25cm/10in Bundt tin and a blender or food processor to make this recipe.
