Cakes / Nana Brown’s Carrot Banana Cake
« on: March 28, 2020, 03:47:40 am »
This is a really old recipe from my Nana Brown. I was recently given her handwritten copy and I thought it should be converted and enjoyed with my forum friends


80g carrot, roughly chopped
rind of 1 lemon
93g butter, room temp
65g raw sugar
1 egg
2 ripe bananas (over ripe is better)
235g SR flour
pinch salt
55g milk

Preheat fan forced oven to 170 degrees Celsius (moderate)
and line a small loaf tin 20 x 10cm


1.   Add carrot to jug    10 Secs | Speed 10    Set carrot aside
2.   Add lemon rind to jug    10 Secs | Speed 7
3.   Add butter & sugar to jug   3 Min's | Speed 3  scraping down when necessary
4.   Mash the banana in a separate bowl, and add to jug with egg   10 Secs | Speed 3
5.   Add flour, salt, carrot & milk   20 Secs | Speed 3 . Spread evenly into loaf tin.
6.   Put in oven 45 – 50 minutes
7.   When cool, top with lemon icing



As this requires 1.5 hours cooking time I'm surprised this falls under a 'Rush Hour' sub title. Allow yourself a couple of hours all up. Definitely well worth making though as it is extremely flavoursome and the cauliflower mash is a really nice smooth and creamy change from potato. I'll definitely make this one again and will be looking forward to it.

Simple dinner last night with just me and DS. I've made a note on the recipe to leave at least 1/2 cm of flesh around the skin so that it holds it shape. I only had left the skin and it just collapsed therefore its not a very good boat. I had to steam the sweet potato for an extra 10 mins before they were soft enough. I don't really enjoy the taste of tuna unless its in something, and this was absolutely delish.

Very quick and easy to make. Because of the rolled oats this is a very thick mix that makes a very thick 'pikelet'. I wasn't sure if I forgot to put the sugar in as it seemed to lack some sweetness, so the topping needed to have this.

Super easy and super nice. Has a bit of a kick to it. Lovely eaten with some crusty bread or toast. Will definitely make again as I usually have most of the ingredients on hand.

Made this during the week. It was nice, but I personally think Quirky Jo's is much better.

Whipped this up last weekend when we had a few people over for lunch. A couple of others said they'd bring a salad so I knew I would be safe to make this one and the beetroot salad. Is very colourful, and there was none left when people had finished eating. I did make it earlier in the morning but it would be made close to serving as the carrot can go a bit watery. The walnuts were a nice addition.

This makes up approx 1 cup and is very nice. Have been using it for all my salads lately.

Whipped this up last week and marinated some chicken. Very nice, very easy. Will make again.

Nice frittata and very straightforward. I will cut the veggies a bit smaller next time (I was rushing to take the puppies for a walk), but no complaints on taste. Would definitely make again.

Yummy! All the potato and onion was chopped evenly. I didn't use the egg rings just free formed them and pressed them down slightly so they were of even thickness. A few friends came over for brekky and they were pretty amazed at how easy the Thermie makes things. One of the hubbies said to his wife they are definitely going to get one  ;D (and there now seems to be some urgency)

I like the ingredients used. A straight forward and easy recipe. Nice mix, and makes a good amount.

With just 2 ingredients this is so easy, and very tasty. I halved it as I do with most dip recipes. Will definitely make again.

No pic sorry, it was pounced upon. An old favourite which is a very easy Friday night dinner. Added 1/2 red capsicum cos I love capsicum with this slice, and if you don't have capsicum you could also add a bit of carrot - its your slice to do whatever you want with and use up a scrap of raw veggie that is begging to be used (just add to the bowl at step 4 so the size is consistent and it will cook at the same rate). Great served with a leafy salad, and also the beetroot salad if you wish.

Very quick to whip up and yummy. Salsa accompanied the nacho's from p77. It is full of liquid so needs a bit of draining.
