A brian turner recipe, oh how nice to have a cake for one instead of needing to make the large one and gain 3 pounds because you cant stop eating it :) This is easily done in the microwave. I haven't tried it yet but the flavors and ease are screaming at me to eat it Obviously it can be increased for more as well
- 110 g caster sugar
- 110 g self-raising flour
- 110 g butter
- 2 free-range eggs
- 1 carrot, grated
- 25 ml milk
- 1 lemon, juice and zest of
- butter, for greasing
- Cream together the sugar and butter. Add the flour, eggs and milk. Mix thoroughly.
- Add the grated carrot and mix to combine. Add the lemon zest and juice. Combine.
- Place the batter in a large buttered ramekin. Microwave on high for five minutes.
This is an outstanding method in making a sweet for myself. I loved the addition of the lemon to this cake mixture...just added the zip needed. Finished in my microwave in 5 minutes perfectly. I did not have a ramekin so used a prep glass instead and it worked fine. Just in case someone else needs the conversions: 110g sugar = almost 1/2 cup; 110 g self-rise flour = almost 1 cup; 110 g butter = almost a 1/2 cup and 25 ml milk = 1.5 tbls. Thanks for sharing! I'll be making this again. So glad I tagged this in Newest Zaar Tag game.
This is a very nice treat-for-one! The texture was good and I liked the lemon flavor. The carrots were good but I'd like to try it with blueberries too. Topped mine with a little powdered sugar and really enjoyed - thanks for posting the recipe!
