Fluffy and moist carrot orange cake; yes, I didn’t want my carrot cake to be boring, so I added orange juice to give it a sharp, tangy flavour. Who can resist such a healthy dessert?. I also topped it with a sugary orange glaze. Why making this simple sugary orange glaze? The reason for making this simple topping glaze is to give the cake extra moisture and sweetness.

Can I use pasteurized orange juice?

Yes, you can I like using fresh homemade orange juice, so I buy the orange then I squeeze it, but you can use pasteurized orange juice if you like.
