Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of flour
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup raw sugar
  • ½ cup cold-pressed rice bran oil
  • 200g crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 cup of grated carrot
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts

Method:

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Mix all the ingredients together except the carrots, pineapple and walnuts.

Once these ingredients are combined, fold in the remaining ingredients.

Pour mix into a lined loaf tin and bake for 45 - 50 minutes.

Notes:

  • This is a wonderful recipe – it’s so easy, you really can let your kids make it from beginning to end. You only need to be on hand to do the oven stuff!
  • If you can’t find (or don’t have!) rice bran oil, you can replace it with another vegetable oil – I really like to use grapeseed oil.
  • Some people don’t like to mix their fruits and veggies (!) – so if you feel uncomfortable adding pineapple to a Carrot Cake, just leave it out. The cake will still be moist, even if it is missing a little of the extra sweetness that the pineapple gives.
