Carrot Cake Recipe

Want to eat cake? Want to eat a low fat healthy cake and not compromising the yummy rating?

You must give this a try!

No, not this:

But this:

I mean, most cakes aren't healthy food right? And most healthy food don't taste that great.  Not this one. I am sorry for taking such poor shots of the cake. It doesn't do justice to the real thing. Its aroma was divine. It tasted brilliant - for a cake that nutritious, low fat and healthy.  

Joanna, my landlady did all this in 1 hour, including all preparation time (10 mins). That's reasonably little effort and a short wait for something delicious.  If you do attempt this: Get hold of your partner, seat him or her near the oven, read a book or surf the net and watch him/her react to the aroma during baking. It's that good :)

Enough of nonsense, the recipe as follows: (graciously donated by Joanna)

2 carrots - grate them
1 egg - beat it
A handful of raisins (1/3 cups to be exact), chopped if you like it.
A handful of walnuts (1/3 cups too), chopped <--- do it
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 cup self raising flour
pinch of salt
1/4 cup olive oil

Mix flour, salt, sugar, cinnamon together.
Mix oil and egg together.

Put in carrot, walnut and raisin into flour mix.
Mix them thoroughly.

Add oil and egg mixture. Do not over mix this batter.

Pour the batter into a rectangle tin, non stick and bake in oven for 50 minutes at 180 degree celsius.
