    • 280g plain flour

    Prep:35min  ›  Cook:50min  ›  Ready in:1hr25min 

    1. Pre-heat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Grease a 23cm round cake tin.
    2. Combine sugars, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix well with a fork or a hand whisk. Add the butter, soya milk and vanilla. Mix well. Add a tiny bit more milk if needed (a tablespoon at a time). Fold in the grated carrots and chopped walnuts. Spread the mixture into the prepared tin.
    3. Bake for 50 minutes. Check with a skewer or a knife if the cake is baked through. If not cover with tin foil and bake for another 10 minutes. Barely no cake mixture should stick to the skewer.
    4. Leave it to cool for at least 30 minutes before removing from the tin.
    5. Leave the cake to cool down in the fridge for at least an hour if applying icing on top of it.

    Lemon icing

    If you wish to ice the cake, make a lemon icing by mixing 150g of icing sugar with 3 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Add the lemon juice little by little, mixing with a whisk, till your desired consistency is achieved.

    Best Carrot cake ever.... So moist and rich! The icing went perfectly with it too! I did not have to change the recipe really it came out really well and kept for a good few days  -  02 Sep 2013


    Lovely recipe! In response to Carlylouise84- you can use extra virgin coconut oil. Holland and barretts often do a good deal. It works lovely in many recipes as a substitute for butter and gives a lovely creamy coconut flavour. I also recommend it as a base for making popcorn, and also as a body moisturizer and hair conditioner!  -  09 Jul 2015
