Last week I found a few sad looking carrots in the bottom of the fridge and being someone who does not like things to be wasted I decided that a carrot cake was in order.
This is really a very easy cake to make and is dairy free as long as you do not add a cream cheese icing like I did.
Carrot Cake Recipe
Mix 3/4 cup of vegetable oil, 2 cups of Brown Sugar and 2tsp of Cinnamon together. Add to this 4 beaten eggs and 1 tsp Vanilla Essence.
In a second bowl mix 2 cups of Wholemeal Flour, 1tsp salt, 1tsp Baking Soda, 2 cups of grated Carrot and 1 cup of Sultanas or Walnuts or half of each. Add the Oil/Egg mix and mix well.
Bake at 160 degrees for 1- 1.5 hours depending on your oven.
