Wonderful Wednesday

Wednesday is a favourite day of the week at Blackwater North State School because Wednesday means staff morning tea.  Everyone walks through the door and surveys the goodies which adorn the table -  placed there by whoever happens to be rostered on that week - and carefully selects the delicious morsels that they care to sample.  It is a wonderful sight to be seen.

This week, I decided to bring out my favourite carrot cake recipe, as referred to in my earlier post, Like your grandma used to make, which you must read! It met with such fabulous success that I thought I should share the recipe, afterall it would be a terrible shame not to.

1 cup SR flour
1 cup P flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp bicarb
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup soft brown sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup golden syrup
2 1/2 cups grated carrot
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

175g cream cheese
60g butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 160 degrees C.  Sift together flours, spices and bicarb.  Separately combine oil, sugar, eggs and syrup.  Stir wet ingredients into dry and mix well before adding carrot and walnuts.  Pour into a 23 centimetre springform tin and bake for an hour or so.
