For the cake
Preheat the oven to 170ºC and grease a cake tin with a small amount of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain. This helps prevent the cake from sticking to the tin.
Grate the carrots and set them aside for later.
Sift the flour with the baking powder into a bowl. Add the bicarbonate of soda and the cinnamon powder to the mixture.
In a separate bowl, mix the remaining ingredients together: brown sugar, Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain, golden syrup, 3 eggs and vanilla. Whisk the mixture until smooth. Add the grated carrots.
Combine the two oil and flour mixtures. Once well mixed, pour the batter into the greased pan and bake for an hour.
For the glaze:
To make the glaze, combine the cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Mix until smooth.
Spread the glaze over the baked cake, and now it’s ready to be served! Do you know another way to make this tasty cake that would help Mr. Balding?
