Carrot cake

No time to make a cake? Think again. This might be the quickest one you'll ever make. I knocked it up while supervising two pans of simmering chilli (one veggie, one beef), cooking rice, refereeing sibling fights, defrosting a pot of salsa, fielding unwanted sales calls and making guacamole. The recipe comes from an old Sainsbury's card and is called Passion Cake. It will certainly stir passion within you for another slice.

Feeling the passion?

Passion cake

1 x 150g natural yogurt
110g grated carrots
75g raisins
2 teaspoons cinnamon
110g soft light brown sugar
150g self raising wholemeal flour
2 eggs, beaten

125g cream cheese
50g butter, softened
225g icing sugar (sifted if you can be bothered)

Pre-heat oven to 180/gas 4. Place all the cake ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined. Transfer to a greased and lined 20cm square tin, and bake for 30-35 minutes. Mix the topping ingredients together and slather all over the top of the cake when it is cool.
