Carrot Cake Mistake

I made a carrot cake and ran out of caster sugar, so I added some brown sugar (not knowing what would happen) and it worked a treat.
This cake has hazelnuts, sultanas and naked crystallized ginger along with the carrots and spices. I didn't use walnuts, but they are nice if you have them and the ginger just adds another dimension.
The icing is cream cheese, lemon juice and icing sugar with toasted almonds.
The result - a very moist, moorish cake...great with 5 Senses Coffee.
Base carrot cake recipe from the Campion and Curtis in the Kitchen cookbook (another great book).
