Spicy Carrot Cake

September 24, 2018 at 14:51 (Bake, Uncategorized)

I love carrot cake. For this cake, the carrots aren’t grated but roughly chopped in a blender. It gives the cake a somewhat crunchy texture with a spiced cake flavour. I don’t usually ice this cake but you could if you wanted.

100g butter

3 eggs separated

4 medium carrots roughly chopped in a blender

1 teaspoons mixed spice

1 cup sugar

1.5 cups self raising flour

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Cream the butter and suger till smooth then add the eggs yolks and vanilla essence. Add the flour, spice and carrot. Beat egg whites into soft peaks and fold into mixture. Pour into a baking tin and bake for 30 – 45 minutes at 180C.
