Carrot and Vegetable Cake with Cinnamon Icing recipe


Method of Prepation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4. Line and grease a 25cm square cake tin.

  2. In a large bowl, sift the flours, salt, cinnamon, ginger and bicarb.

  3. In a second large bowl, beat the eggs with the sugars. Add the vanilla extract and oil and beat to combine everything.

  4. Slowly tip the flour into the wet mixture until all the dry ingredients are absorbed.

  5. Fold the grated vegetables along with the apple into the cake mixture. Once combined, pour the mix into the prepared cake tin.

  6. Cook for 45 minutes to one hour, or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
