Very easy to make. I replaced the Sultanas with Cranberries (only due to personal preference) and it still tastes great. I don't feel it has too much oil at all.

I adapted this a bit by using white sugar instead of raw & substituting 3/4 cup walnuts for a mix of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds & chocolate chips. I wish I thought of using an apple because I did not have pineapple but it turned out great. Just needed more spice but still it has a great base taste. Still 5 stars from me & will make this again soon., approved=true, user_name=Rose, rating_new__1_5_=5, hs_createdate=1702249880074, id=11175605054}, {comment_text=Its a really good recipe, easy to make and DELICIOUS i used pecans instead of walnuts GREAT recipe overall., approved=true, user_name=SOME BODY :], rating_new__1_5_=4, hs_createdate=1702249879903, id=11175475808}]}

What did you think of this recipe?


Pre-heat oven to 180°C bake (160°C fan-forced). Grease a 23cm cake tin (6cm deep) and line with baking paper.
Sift Edmonds Self Raising Flour, spices and Edmonds Baking Soda into a large mixing bowl. Stir in Edmonds Wholemeal Flour and Chelsea Raw Sugar or Chelsea Organic Coconut Sugar. Add walnuts, carrot, raisins and coconut and stir until combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, Simply Canola Oil and vanilla. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
Pour the cake mixture into the prepared tin and smooth the surface. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until cooked (when a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean). Remove from oven, cool for 10 minutes then remove from the cake tin and peel away the paper. Swirl icing over the cake once cold.
Cream Cheese Icing
Beat Tararua Butter and cream cheese together until combined. Stir in Chelsea Icing Sugar, then beat mixture on high speed until light and fluffy.
