Carrot cake

My mum’s favourite cake is carrot cake. This is the best recipe ever!

  • 350g self raising flour
  • 350g light brown sugar
  • 350ml sunflower oil
  • 6 carrots
  • 6 eggs
  • Several handfuls of sultanas
  • Good dash of orange juice
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger

Cheese frosting:

  • 1 tub of cream cheese
  • Orange zest
  • 50g icing sugar

Soak the grated carrots and sultanas in orange juice whilst greasing your tin and finding all the things you need. Mix all the ingredients together and then add the soaked carrots and sultanas. Bake in a 8 inch square tin for about an hour on gas mark 4. Leave to cool and make the cheese frosting. Sift the icing sugar into the cream cheese and apply generously on top of the cake. I also decorated it with lemon zest and a big ‘Mum’ out of sultanas. Happy Mother’s Day!
