Carrot Cake, by Sian.

1 Cup of Olive Oil
1 Cup of Brown Sugar
3 Eggs
1 1/2 Cups Self Raising Flour
1 Tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
2 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Cup of Walnuts
2 Cups of Grated Carrots

My Mum says that this Carrot Cake is so easy to make a kid could do it. So today I decided to have a go. Mum got to tell me what to do but I had to do it!

I got all the wet ingredients like the egg, brown sugar and olive oil and blended them up in the food proccesor.

Next I put the flour, bicarbonate of soda and the cinnamon into the sieve and sieved them. Then I mixed everything all up with a cup of walnuts and the grated carrot.

I put the mixture in the tin and put it in the oven at 180 degrees and cooked them for about 12 minutes.

I made icing by mixing Philadelphia cream cheese with icing sugar and a little bit of lemon juice and spread it on the cakes as soon as they had got a little bit cooler. The next thing I did was eat one to see if they were poisonous!

There was one last thing to do though. You will need a grown up to do this bit for you.....

Tidying up the kitchen!
