Spicy Carrot Cake


This is my favourite cake


1.1 1/2 cups grated carrots
2.1 1/2 cups raisins
3.2 1/2 cups water
4.3 tablespoons oil
5.1 cup golden syrup
6.2 teaspoons cinnamon
7.2 teaspoons nutmeg
8.2 teaspoons mixed spice
9.3 cups wholemeal self raising flour
10.1 cup chopped walnut (or other nuts)
11.1 tub soy cream cheese
12.1/3 cup icing sugar
13.Rind of 1 lemon
14.1 teaspoon vanilla essence


1.Place ingredients 1-8 in a pan, and simmer for 10 minutes. Allow to cool completely (good to do the day before)
2.When cool add ingredients 9 and 10
3.Mix all together well, and pour into a well buttered cake tin (or 2 cake tins)
4.Bake at 180 degrees for 45 mins to an hour. (If putting into 2 tins, they need less baking time). To test if cooked, poke with a stick of raw spaghetti, and if it comes out clean without cake batter on it, it is ready. Or just give it a push with your finger, if it bounces back, it's ready.
5.Beat remaining ingredients (11-14) together well, and ice cake with it.
