"A moist carrot cake with a lemon icing. Only almonds rather than walnuts as well and no spices. Is really delicious and is the standard birthday cake in our household."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/4 cups
1 1/2 cups
finely chopped almonds
lemon, zested and juiced
1 1/2 teaspoons
confectioners' sugar, or as needed
Very delicate, delicious cake--very different from the more "hearty", spiced carrot cake we're all used to. I loved the lemon flavor and the light icing--perfect for serving at a tea or brunch. Mine came out a little dark on top, so you may want to cover with foil the last 20 minutes or so of baking. I'll be serving again for special occasions!
This cake was a little too lemony for me. I was looking for something closer to carrot cake. This, while good, did not taste anything like carrot cake. It is light and would be good to serve at a tea or luncheon.
This came out out great, without a lot of effort. I used freshly squeezed orange juice instead of lemon. Half the juice of one orange went into the cake and the other half went into the glaze. I also only 1/2 cup of confectioners' sugar in the glaze. This will make a great breakfast treat!
Well, I didn't expect that. And I knew not to expect a normal carrot cake but wow. The lemon on top gives a wham bam, thank you ma'am.
was very moist, a delicious cake. I frosted it with the lemon glaze frosting and sprinkled sliced almonds on the top.. was a big hit..
