1 cup wholemeal flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking (bicarbonate) soda
½ tsp salt
1 & ½ tsp cinnamon
1 & ½ tsp mixed spice
1 & ½ tsp nutmeg
3/4 cup brownsugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil (I use light olive or canola oil)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup grated carrot
1/3 of a tin (450g size) drained crushed pineapple

Mix all together

Cook in an 8" ring tin for 35 mins @ 175 C degrees
If cooked in a regular tin it may take a wee bit longer. Check with a skewer in the centre.
I line the bottom of the tin with baking paper.

Cream Cheese Icing
125g cream cheese, at room temperature
½ cup icing sugar, sifted, 50g melted butter
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
1 tbsp lemon juice
1. In a bowl, beat cream cheese until creamy. Add the icing sugar, melted butter and lemon zest and juice and beat until the mixture is fluffy.
2. Spread over cold carrot cake to serve.
