The Brilliant Chef made scrummy looking Orange Choc Chip Cookies.

Thank you for joining in, I’ve shared the posts on Twitter and Pinterest too.

Carrot Cake

This is a very simple carrot cake which contains no nuts or extra flavourings, just carrots and a little cinnamon.
You can cover it with a cream cheese frosting, or butter cream, but we like it as it is.

185g sugar
180 ml vegetable oil
2 eggs
150g self raising flour
 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
130g carrots grated (about 3 medium carrots)

mix together the sugar oil and eggs in a large bowl.
Sift in the flour baking powder, salt and cinnamon
Add the grated carrots
mix well
bake for 50 minutes at gas mark 5

    I adore carrot cake but have never before made it myself. Little man looks like he's having lots of fun. I don't have access to my laptop this week but will see if I can manage to link up an old post through my phone in a moment. Xxx

    Yummm we love carrot cake but I've never been brave enough to make it, I'm not really sure why as this recipe looks so straight forward!
