Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C fan-forced (356°F). Grease and line the base and sides of a 20 cm square cake pan.

Step 2

Use electric beaters to beat sugar, vanilla, and coconut oil until pale and creamy. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Step 3

Sift flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon into the wet ingredients, beating until well combined.

Step 4

Fold in the grated carrot and walnuts.

Step 5

Pour the cake mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Bake for 30-40 minutes until risen and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 6

While the cake is cooling, place all the ingredients for the icing into a large mixing bowl and beat with electric mixers until pale and creamy.

Step 7

Once the carrot cake has cooled you can spread the icing then serve.
