Carrot Cake, just while the oven is already on...
I used to be able to put this cake together in seven minutes (I thought it was five, but someone timed me and it was seven), and add it the oven when there was already dinner cooking there. It's great hot with custard - just sayin' - and it has secret vegetables! Perfect.
Easy Carrot Cake
Versatile and quick - make it for dessert, as muffin-sized cakes, or go the full deal with cream cheese icing...
- 1 c wholemeal flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 c currants
- 1 c brown or raw sugar
- 1 ½ c grated carrot
- ½ c oil
- 2 eggs
Mix together the flour, baking soda and cinnamon.
Add the currants, sugar and grated carrot.
In a separate bowl, beat the oil and eggs.
Mix the oil/egg and the dry ingredients together thoroughly
Bake in a greased tin @ 350C for 40 minutes.
This is great hot with custard, cold with yoghurt, or just plain. I very seldom bother with icing...
