Method for Carrot Cake

Firstly, preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4, then oil and line the cake tin with greaseproof paper.

Put the sugar in a bowl, pour in the oil and eggs. Mix lightly together, then add the grated carrots, raisins and orange zest. Evenly mix in the rest of the ingredients. The mixture should be soft and slightly runny.


Pour the cake mixture into the ready prepared baking tin and cook for 40 -45 minutes until the cake feels spongy when you press the top.

Cool the cake in the tin for about 5 minutes then turn out onto a cooling wire. 

You can freeze at this point.


Whilst the cake is cooling make the icing by mixing together the icing sugar and orange juice.  The consistency should be like that of single cream.

Put the carrot cake onto the serving plate and drizzle the icing diagonally over the top of the cake allowing it to run down the sides.

Cut into 12 pieces and serve with a delicious cup of tea.
