Carrot Cake with Cardamom, Currants, and Ginger-Crème Fraîche Chantilly
A couple of years ago, my nieces asked me to make a carrot cake — with no walnuts or cinnamon — for a birthday party. One of their friends was allergic to both ingredients, but they really wanted a carrot cake for this occasion. So I got to work and decided to turn to one of my favorite spices, cardamom, to give this carrot cake some spunk. The exotic spice ended up pairing magnificently with the carrots! As for the walnuts, I replaced them with juicy, plump currants that contribute a bit of sweetness to the cake. But that's not all! Instead of choosing a bland vegetable oil, I decided to use olive oil. The results were splendid! The olive oil not only makes the cake incredibly moist, but it adds a wonderful delicate flavor to it. As a last touch, the cake is decorated with a featherweight Chantilly spiked with fresh ginger juice and crème fraîche. Need I say more?! This carrot cake met the approval of all the children at the birthday party that day… I even heard that not a crumb was left. Serve this at any birthday party, special occasion, or even Thanksgiving dinner and everyone will be impressed.
