Healthy (ish) January baking

18 Jan

My work colleagues have been demanding cake and I’m not one to disappoint.

Having said that, it’s January – a time to be healthy.

It therefore made sense to make a healthy (ish) cake. What better way than to bake with a vegetable?!

The Good Food website has a lovely carrot, raisin and orange cake, which I’ve made a few times. In fact it’s called Yummy Scrummy carrot cake. And it’s not lying!

Back to my beautiful new ceramic mixing bowl šŸ˜Š

Mix together light muscavado sugar, sunflower oil, eggs, self raising flour, bicarb, nutmeg, cinnamon, orange zest and carrots and you have a taste sensation!


After being baked in the oven for 40 minutes, it comes out looking something like this…


I’ve made this a few times but think it was possibly the best I’ve made. Everyone at work enjoyed it too šŸ˜ƒ
