Carrot cake disappointment

Lil GN loves his carrot cake, so I promised him I would make him one, free from those bits he just doesn’t appreciate (raisins and walnuts).  He’s a definite carrot fan.

So nanny was sent for the ingredients and a Sunday morning was set aside for the masterpiece. In fact, instead of a normal old carrot cake,  why not a traybake I thought?

I dug out another Hummingbird bakery recipe and got started.  And that’s when it started going wrong…

Carrot cakeNo brown sugar? Ah well caster would do as well.

No baking powder and bicarbonate of soda? Well I can use self-raising flour.

Sure it looked awfully pale and thin going to the oven but sure it would change as it baked.
Or not…

I don’t think I can bear to have Lil GN try these.  I don’t think he’ll be kind. Maybe I’ll just pretend I forgot….
