Delicious autumn cake – just had to bake something with my lovely apples.

Cake:
175 g butter, 3 eggs, 2 dl sugar (half caster, half brown or muscovado) 2 tsp baking powder, 3,5 dl flour, 2 dl grated carrot, 2 dl grated apple, grated lemon zest

Frosting:
200 g Philadelphia cheese, 50 g melted butter, 3 tbsp icing sugar, 2 tbsp lemon juice

Pre-heat the oven to 180 C.
Melt the butter and let it cool.
Peel and grate the carrots and apples.
Mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, lemon zest). Beat the eggs and sugar.
Turn in all the other ingredients to the beaten eggs.

Grease a cake tin and pour in bread crumbs. Shake the tin so that the crumbs cover the bottom and the sides or the tin, You can also line the tin with baking or parchment paper. Pour in the batter. Bake for about 50 min.

Make the frosting.
Melt the butter and let it cool.
Mix the cheese, sugar and lemon juice. Pour in the butter.
Spread on the cooled cake and decorate with pecans, raisins and apple slices.
