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

Ingredients:

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

Method:

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


Enjoy!

Hi CP - great to hear from you again.  Congrats on being a granny!  If I wasn't watching my weight I would be over at my TMX now making this cake.  Thanks for the recipe

I made this yesterday. Sadly it didn't really grab us. I'm not sure if it was the carrot and banana flavour or what. It was only a small cake but that is fine.
