The Granary’s Carrot Cake


• 184g Plain flour
• 2 tsp cinnamon
• 1/3 tsp salt
• 1 1/3 tsp baking powder
• 3 eggs
• 266g golden caster sugar
• 230ml vegetable oil

To achieve the perfect carrot cake, pay close attention to the
following steps:

  1. First, you must pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius, lightly grease a baking tin and line it with baking parchment.
  2. Next, you need to mix together the flour, salt, cinnamon and baking powder into a large bowl while you mix the eggs and sugar with some oil in a different bowl.
  3. Slowly add in the flour, salt and cinnamon mix into the eggs and sugar and mix thoroughly. Gradually begin to add the raisins and the carrot gratings while mixing.
  4. Once the mix has been stirred enough, pour the batter into a cake tin and place in the oven for 35-40 minutes.
  5. Once the cake is out of the oven, place on a cake rack and leave to cool. Once it has cooled, smother the cake in cream cheese icing and enjoy.
