Ingredients –

3 free range or organic eggs

3/4 of a cup of oil – sunflower

3/4 of a cup of sugar

1 cup of self-raising flour

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 cup of grated carrot

1/2 cup of sultanas

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Icing

1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup cream cheese

1 cup of pure icing sugar (a drop of vanilla essence and a little lemon rind)

Method: Beat the eggs until well combined. Add slowly the sugar, then mix. Add the oil. Gradually add the sifted flour and the cinnamon. Lastly with a wooden spoon fold in the grated carrot, sultanas and vanilla. Once ready spoon ingredients into a greased cake tin. Bake in a preheated oven on a moderate temperature for 45 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius or 350 Fahrenheit.

Tip: Easy decoration: use slivered almonds and cut up baby carrots. To make the small green stem at the top use soft icing sugar, with a little green food colouring mixed in the icing sugar and a cake pipe.
