|Lazy banana and carrot cake.|
175ml sunflower oil
175g coarsely grated carrots (or you can use a mixture of carrot and eating apple).
2 very ripe, medium sized bananas mashed (or 3 smaller ones).
280g plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon (optional).
butter/margarine for greasing the tin
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease and line a 9 inch, spring form (or similar sized square/loaf) tin.
Put the sugar, eggs, oil, grated carrot, mashed banana in a large bowl and mix briefly. Make sure there are no lumps of sugar.
|Sugar, eggs, oil, carrot and banana mixed together.|
Sift in the flour (do yourself a favour and sift it for this one, otherwise you'll never get the lumps out), and the bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
Mix all the ingredients together until they are combined and pour into the cake tin.

Allow the cake to cool in the tin for ten minutes and then turn out on to a cooling rack and remove the lining paper.
If you can possibly bear to wait, cool completely before eating.
