The Story: The cultivation of vegetables in Aargau is one of the main
reasons for the existence of a thriving canning/bottling industry. In
this area, the carrot is the Queen of all vegetables and it has
attributes which allow it to be used everywhere, even in desserts.
This carrot cake is now a Swiss classic, its reputation having been
extended long ago far beyond the borders of the canton. Some maintain
that the cake is better two days after baking as the carrots keep it
moist. Then beat egg whites until light. Add the finely grated carrots
and the almonds. Mix in the cornflour, cinnamon, ground cloves and
baking powder. Then add the kirsch. Mix or beat until smooth. Beat the
egg whites until stiff and carefully fold in. Butter a tin (24 cm
diameter, 5 cm high), dust with flour. Turn the mixture into the tin.
Bake in the oven for 50 ... 60 minutes at 180 oC. When cooked, brush
the cake with a hot apricot glaze and thin fondant icing. Decorate
with small marzipan carrots. Culinary Art and Traditions of
