Carrot and Raisin Cake – no sugar

Thicarrot and raisin cakes cake has no sugar though a little could be added if desired.  I used 1/2 cup
of wholemeal flour but again, you could make it with all wholemeal if you like that consistency.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 6 walnuts
  • 1/4 c oil (cold compressed preferably)
  • 1 tbsp apple juice concentrate or 1/2 c stewed apple
  • 1/3 c natural yoghurt
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 c raw carrot (grated or finely chopped)
  • 1/2 c raisins or sultanas
  • 2 eggs or 4 egg whites

Sift dry ingredients. Chop walnuts & mix in. Combine oil, apple (juice or stewed), yoghurt & vanilla essence & mix well. Add carrot & raisins/sultanas. Mix again. Beat egg whites or eggs. Fold into mixture – will be quite stiff. Turn mixture into tin (up to 20cm square).

Cook for 45 – 60 min at 180 deg C.

This is nice eaten by itself but it not sweet.  I like to slice it and add a little butter…
