There are times when you work and times when you say stuff it and go bake a cake!
This is a cake that is better when eaten a day after it has been cooked, not suitable for those with nut allergies. Top with any icing that you like, lemon, or cream cheese, orange, all go well. The secret ingredient? Peanut Oil.
1 cup raw sugar
3/4 cup peanut oil
1-2 cups wholemeal flour–add until consistency is correct for cake batter, will be firm
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
1 and 1/2 cups of grated carrot, younger carrots make better cake as older ones get woody
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon soda bicarbonate
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix sugar and oil. I beat with wooden spoon makes a better texture
Add carrot mix well then add nuts
Add soda bi carbonate, baking powder and cinnamon
Fold in flour
Bake at 350c 45 minutes or until wooden skewer comes out clean
