  • Heat the oven to 180°c/160°F/Gas Mark 4. Grease and line the tin. Grate the carrots. Beat the eggs with a fork. In a larger bowl beat together the sugar and oil. Add the beaten eggs a little at a time to the larger bowl, beating the mixture well after each addition. Then stir in the grated carrot.
  • Sift the flour with the baking powder, mixed spice, ginger, bicarbonate of soda and salt over the mixture. Gently fold together with a wooden spoon. Spoon the mixture into the tin and bake for 45 mins until it is well risen and firm.
  • Once the cake is out of the oven leave to cool in the tin for about ten minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
  • To make the topping, sift the icing sugar into a bowl, add the cream cheese, lemon juice and vanilla. Beat the mixture well. When the cake is cooled spoon icing on cake. Spread with a knife.
