Not Carrot Cake Recipe

Preparation time:

10 minutes

Cooking time:

50 minutes



This is a very simple recipe that can be used as an alternative to Carrot Cake. It saves on grating all those carrots and tastes pretty much the same - except nicer. It’s lovely and moist and stays that way for days. Try it - you’ll be amazed - believe me. And your kids will love it too! I usually make two at a time because they get gobbled up pretty quick. Please note that this is not a sugar-free or fat-free carrot cake recipe.


2 cups of plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
pinch of salt

1 cup of Golden Syrup
2 teaspoons honey
125g butter (half a cup I think)
3/4 cup of soft brown sugar

2 large eggs
1 cup milk

For the icing:
125g butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
300g icing sugar
2 tablespoons milk

You don’t need to be toooooooo exact with the above measurements. It will work out OK whatever you do. And, don’t worry if the mix is kind of lumpy - it’s supposed to be like that and sorts itself out in the oven. So, here we go ....


1. Sift the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, bicarbonate, cinnamon, ginger and salt) into a mixing bowl.

2. Heat the Golden Syrup, honey, butter and sugar in a saucepan until all the sugars are dissolved.

3. Beat the eggs and milk together.

4. Mix all of the wet ingredients (from 2 and 3 above) together in a large bowl and then fold in the sifted dry ingredients. Do this carefully to avoid losing the air that is in the sifted dry ingredients.

5. Pour the mix (it’s pretty runny like a batter at this stage) into a lined baking dish and place in a preheated oven at 180 degrees celcius. Handy converter

6. Bake for 35 minutes, then cover the top with parchment paper and return to the oven for another 15 minutes or so. It’s cooked when a skewer is poked into it and comes out clean.

7. Let it cool before trying to remove it from the baking dish.

To make the icing, simple blend together all the icing ingredients (using an electric whisk) until smooth.

Spread this over the cooled cake.

Yum yum
