Unpeeled carrot go green when you cook it. Was the recipe nice. I have a very nice one that was posted here long time ago. I get a lot of comments on it being one of the best they have eaten.

Benandgabby, is there baking soda in your recipe ? I'm sure someone else asked about this sometime last year and I think the reason was reaction to the baking soda and other raising agents in the cake.

2 Cups of wholemeal Flour
2 Cups of sugar
2 tsp of Mixed spice
2 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp of Baking Soda
1 Cup of Walnuts
1/2 Cup of Pumpkin seeds (pepita) (I don't use this so optional)
1 Cup of Sultanas
1 Cup of chopped up dried Apricots (I don't use this so optional)

750gm Grated Carrots
1 & 1/2 Cups oil
4 eggs
2 tsp Vanilla

Mix all the dry ingredients together except, (carrots, oil, eggs, vanilla)
Add grated carrots, mix well.
Whisk up 1 1/2 Cups oils with the 4 eggs, add the vanilla.
Fold Carefully into the dry ingredients DO NOT OVER MIX. I use my hands just to be gentle on the mixture and not to over mix either.
Bake at 170c for up to 2 hours keep an eye on it. Don’t forget to line the tin, makes a 22cm cake
