Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup(s) white self-raising flour, (75g)
  • 1/2 cup(s) plain flour, (75g)
  • 3/4 cup(s) almond meal, (90g)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp dried ginger, ground
  • 1/2 cup(s) brown sugar, (110g)

  • 2 medium Egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup(s) skim milk, (80ml)
  • 1 tsp icing sugar, for dusting
  • 1 x 3 second spray(s) oil spray
Instructions

Preheat oven to 160°C. Lightly spray a 22cm round cake tin with oil. Line the base and side with baking paper.

Sift the combined flour, almond meal, baking powder and combined spices into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar, carrot, spread, egg and milk until combined.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin. Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Leave the cake in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar.
