Carrot Cake

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.


  1. A carrot cake is not a carrot cake without the cream cheese icing! Looks yummy!!!

  2. yumbo - this looks great. Trouble with cooking it that I always end up eating it too! Good to use up those carrots though.

  3. Oh carrot cake! DELISH but verboten for me as I cannot be trusted with such deliciousness without supervision. That and the fact that the sugar would send me crazy.


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
