150ml olive oil
150ml raw/brown sugar
1 tsp extra baking powder
125g self raising flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp mixed spice
100g chopped walnuts
250g grated carrot
Grease and line a baking tin (18cm in diameter) with baking paper. Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C.
Beat the eggs, oil and sugar together in a large bowl for several minutes.
Sift the flour, baking powder and spices together then stir into the egg mixture. Add the ground almonds, sultanas, grated carrots and walnuts and mix well.
If the mixture seems a little stiff, stir in several tablespoons of mil.
Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin and bake in the oven for around 50 minutes. Test with a knife and remove the cake from the oven only when it comes out clean.
Cool cake in the tin, then turn out and dust with icing sugar.
If not, just serve it with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream
I don’t bake in London. It’s hard to do it alone there and the problem with baking is that the measurements must be precise or else something/everything can go very badly. So normally when I am back in Singapore, I try to do some baking although the truth be told, i didn’t think about it until my mom suggested it. So thats what we did together. I think it’s fun to bake when you have a bunch of people doing it together.
