Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 8x1 1/2-inch round cake pan; set aside. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat butter on medium-high speed for 30 seconds. Gradually add granulated sugar; beat until combined. Beat 2 minutes more.

Place remaining 1/2 cup mango juice blend in a small saucepan; bring to boiling. Boil gently, uncovered, 3 to 4 minutes or until reduced to 1/4 cup. Remove from heat; cool. Frost top of one cake layer with Cream Cheese Frosting. Top with remaining cake layer; frost as desired. Drizzle with reduced juice; top with carrot ribbons.

From the Test Kitchen

* Carrot Ribbons

Use a vegetable peeler to thinly slice carrots lengthwise. Place in a bowl of ice water for at least 30 minutes. Drain and pat dry with paper toweling.

For a Three Layer Cake:

Increase the batter by 1/2 to make a three-layer cake using the following amounts: 3 cups flour, 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder, 3/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 3/4 cup butter, 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 3 eggs, 1 1/2 cup mango juice (using 1 cup in the cake and 1/2 cup for the topper) and 4 1/2 cups finely shredded carrots. Divide the batter into three 8x1-1/2 inch pans and bake as directed. Double the frosting recipe in order to frost the top and sides of the cake.
