Carrot cake

Since I watched Rachel Allen makes her carrot cake on Bake!, I always found excuse to make this over and over myself. What I love about this cake, is all the sweet components in it, you got the raisins, and of course the carrot itself, so I often put less sugar in the recipe, talks about healthy cake here.


  • 1/3 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 50g of chopped walnut or almond
  • 1/4 cup of raisin
  • 1 tsp of ground cinnamom
  • 1 tsp of ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp of ground allspice
  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • 1 tsp of baking powder

In a bowl, whisk together oil, sugar, and egg till pale, about 4-5 min. Later, stir in the grated carrot, walnut and raisin. On top of the mixture, sift in all the dry ingredients. Fold well, just let the flour damped with the batter, and pour into a ready-lined and greased tin. This goes to a preheated, 180C oven to bake around 35 min. The cake is done, when a skewer went into the center, comes out clean.
