I guess you all missed me, huh? Well, I've been hard at work perfecting my latest recipes* and I'm ready to show you how to make an astonishing low fat taste-tastic carrot cake; perfect for when your humans are on the lardy side like mine. This week's challenge is technically bread, but that's on the 'naughty' list at the moment, so we're going to concoct a low-fat carrot cake. This comes in at about 250 calories a slice, assuming your human is prepared to divide it into 10 slices and not scoff the whole thing, the savage brute.
Make sure you're ready to cook; have your human make you a new apron and ensure that you wash the tuna guts off of your hands if you've just been feeding the giant squid.
Here are the things you'll need:
|That's 250g of unpeeled carrot, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 3 large eggs, 100ml sunflower oil, 100g soft brown sugar, 200g self raising flour, 1 orange (well-scrubbed), 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 100g sultanas.|
Oh, and hand one of these to your human.
|Peel those carrots!|
|She did NONE of the work.|
Next, crack your eggs into a bowl and prepare to beat the heck out of them.
Mix in the carrot and orange zest, then stir in the flour, sultanas, spices and baking powder. Make sure everything is evenly combined.
|Mix everything thoroughly.|
|Remind your fat human at this point that she's not allowed to lick the bowl.|
|Sexy, sexy cake. Notice how it's pretty thin? That's because my springform tin is 27cm. D'oh!|
|Even sexier cake!|
