What else is there to do when all your plans get cancelled? BAKE!

Followed this lush recipe and served it without the frosting. I’m not a big frosting fan, naked is better!

1) Mix wet ingredients in a mixing bowl: 1 egg, 1 cup milk, minced ginger (I used the cheating one out of jar) and whisk together.

2) Mix dry ingredients in a mixing bowl: 2 cups plain flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 baking soda, medium shake of cinnamon, big shake of ground ginger, 4 tbsp softened butter. Mush together.

3) I was a bit lazy and just went straight in with my electric whisk adding wet to dry and whirring. After a few mins the batter was smooth but quite thick. It’s a thick batter by nature it looks like.

3.5) Whoops almost forgot this step duhh. Fold in 1 grated carrot!

4) Fill a lined loaf tin with the mix and oven for 1 hour on 170 degrees C. Mine took 57 mins, so keep an eye on it.

I’d serve this with cream or ice cream, I had neither so went for natural yoghurt. Healthy!
