Carrot cake recipe


This classic cake is always a crowd pleaser, and easy to make.

Does this count as your 5 a day?


175g light muscovado sugar

175ml sunflower oil

3 medium eggs

140g grated carrot

100g raisins

175g self-raising flour (sifted)

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp grated nutmeg


Heat the oven to 150C.

Tip the sugar, sunflower oil and eggs into a bowl and lightly mix them together.

Stir in the carrots and raisins .

Add the flour, bicarbonate, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Mix everything together, the mixture will be soft and almost runny.

Pour the mixture into a lined baking tin and bake for 40-45 mins.

You can also check by inserting a small knife or toothpick in the middle, if it comes out clean it means it is cooked.

Bon Appétit!
