National Carrot Cake Day

I'm never sure how many of these 'National days' to believe… but this is one I'm happy to go with. National carrot cake day- an excuse to eat cake, does it get any better?!

I've dug out a carrot cake recipe from the BBC Good Food website so you can have a shot at making your own and really get involved with National carrot cake day!

Here's what you need:

175g light muscovado sugar
175ml sunflower oil
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
140g grated carrots (about 3 medium)
100g raisins
Grated zest of 1 large orange
175g self-raising flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg (freshly grated will give you the best flavour)

175g icing sugar
11/2-2tbsp orange juice.

Feel free to edit as you wish- I will personally be leaving out the raisins!

Follow the link below for the full method:  

All that remains once your cake is baked is to share it with your friends (or not, it's up to you). Sit back with a slice and watch something relaxing on the T.V… I think there's a football match on, but taking my attention will be the film, Cars 2, on tonight, who says animated films are just for kids?!
