Eggless carrot cake baked in I heart cake silicon mould and a giveaway


Delicious aromatic, spicy rich and moist carrot cake.

Ingredients:

150 ml sunflower or vegetable oil
200 g soft light brown sugar
300 g peeled and grated carrots
75 g walnuts, chopped
175 g plain flour
2 eggs or egg replacer
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon mixed spice
A pinch of salt
1/2 tablespoon icing sugar

Method:



1. Preheat the oven to 35O°F /180° C.
2. Brush some oil all around the silicon mould making sure bottom and all sides are well oiled
3. In a bowl whisk the oil and sugar, next add the grated carrots and chopped nuts and mix well.
4. Sieve the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate, cinnamon, mixed spice and salt in to a bowl. Stir in the egg replacer. Gently fold the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients together. Do not over mix.
5. Pour the mixture into the prepared silicon mould smoothing the surface with a palette knife. Bake in the oven for 60 – 75 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.



6. Allow the cake to cool in the mould for about 30 minutes, once cooled carefully pull away the mould. (Do not be tempted to un mould the cake whilst its hot as it will break)
7. Once cake is fully cooled place it on a plate and sieve some icing sugar over it.

Serve with cream or ice cream.


I was sent this I heart cake silicon mould by Mustard .The mould is made from silicone and incorporates a unique petal design which enables you to divide your cake into 6 equal heart-shaped slices as you can see in the photo above.
The mould is fairly large and will make a generous sized cake, I also used it to make jelly and a large flower shaped icecream so that when I de moulded the ice cream  I could serve slices that were heart shaped.The mould retails at £ 15.00 and you can purchase it from Mustard on line.
I would like to thank Mustard for sending me this mould, all the views and opinions in this post are my own.


Mustard have been very generous and they have agreed to bring some romance in to simply. food readers lives They have provided two I heart cake moulds for prizes for two lucky winners.
