Lemon & Carrot Cake
Member Name: bluemoon37
Advantages: Cheap, Easy to make, Suitable for vegetarians
This is just a little cake that I treat myself to sometimes and I thought that I would share the recipe, it's quick to make, delicious and suitable for vegetarians.
I found this recipe after our oven broke as you microwave the cake, which seems a bit strange at first but let me assure you that it works. They make wonderful little presents for friends, which cost you hardly anything to make but are made with love.
110g/4oz caster sugar
110g/4oz self-raising flour
2 free range eggs
1 carrot, grated
25ml/1fl oz milk
1 lemon, zest and juice only
butter, for greasing
Step 1-Cream together the sugar and butter. Add the flour, eggs and milk. Mix thoroughly.
Step 2-Add the grated carrot and mix to combine. Add the lemon zest and juice. Combine.
Step 3-Place the batter in a large buttered ramekin. Microwave on high for five minutes. Serve and enjoy!
Summary: A lovely little lemon and carrot cake
