This is my all time favorite cake! It can never go wrong. Once you make it, you will fall in love!

What you need: 280g self-raising flour 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp ground mixed spice (you can also use gingerbread spice) 170g soft light brown sugar 2 medium bananas, mashed  170g carrots, trimmed, scrubbed and grated 3 eggs, beaten 170ml sunflower oil For the filling and topping you need;  50g softened butter  300g icing sugar  125g soft cheese 

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Grease 23cm deep round cake tin. 2. Mix the flour, baking powder, ground spice, and brown sugar together 3. Add the mashed bananas, carrots, eggs, and sunflower oil. Beat well with a wooden spoon. 4. Pour into the prepared cake tin and bake for 45 to 55 minutes. Remove from oven and leave to cool in the tine for a few minutes, before tunring out onto a wire cooling rack. 5. For the icing, beat together the butter and icing suger until it looks like breadcrums. Add the soft cheese and continue beating until the icing is soft and fluffy. Cut the cake in half and spead glazng in the middle of the cake and the rest of the icing on the top of the cake.

Ps. If you don’t have icing sugar at home you can make your own! You only need a powerful mixer (I used thermomix) and normal sugar. Blend it on the highest sleep for 3 minutes and you have your icing sugar perfectly made!

Happy baking!
