This is a great carrot cake recipe that is easy to make. It calls for self-raising flour, carrots, and butter - no other spices, pineapple, raisins, etc. The Cream cheese icing is also easy to make and really delicious. Feel free to reduce the amount of sugar in the cake if you prefer your cakes less sweet.

I made it today lunch when some guests came over and they even took some home with them because they thought it was so lovely!


3 pieces of Carrots medium size [cut into pieces]
¹/₂ cup sugar
100 g butter
3 cups self-raising flour (alternatively normal wheat flour and 1 tablespoon of baking powder can do)
 3 eggs
1 ¹/₂ cups milk
³/₄ cup of cooking oil

Add carrots, eggs, and oil in a blender and blend. In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, butter and baking powder. Pour the carrots, eggs and oil mixture into the dry ingredients mixture, add milk and whisk to a smooth mixture then bake in the oven for 45 minutes at 350 C.

Tips: You can easily halve the amount of sugar for a less sweet cake.
