Baby carrot cake

Another baby-led weaning recipe, sugar-free carrot cake. It’s not very cakey but I actually think this is really delicious and would make it just for myself! It comes from the baby-led weaning cookbook.

200g wholemeal flour

3 tsp baking powder

110g dates, finely chopped

50g ground almonds

50g dessicated coconut

3 tsp ground mixed spice

110g melted butter

110g sultanas

1 large carrot, grated

Grated zest of 1 orange

2 tbsp orange juice

2 eggs

Put flour and baking powder in a bowl

Add the dates, coconut, nuts and spices

Mix thoroughly

Combine the butter, sultanas, carrot, orange zest and juice

Add to the dry ingredients

Combine to make a thick paste

Beat the eggs and add them

Spoon into a cake tin and bake for 45-50 mins. Check with a skewer that it comes out clean

This froze well so I could give it to baby in portions
