Hi Ali here!

Jeanette Thomas from The Breeze Auckland made us the best Carrot Cake I have ever eaten (our whole team agreed). So I begged her for the recipe and here it is. Thanks JT !

2 tsp Baking Soda

2 cups Raw Sugar 

1/4 tsp salt

2 LARGE tsp cinnamon 

1 cup orange juice /oil (2/3 orange & the rest olive oil)

4 lightly beaten eggs

3 cups of grated carrot 


1. Mix the dry ingredients 

2. Add the orange juice, eggs and grated carrot. Mix them well. 

3.  Place the mixture into your cake tin. I used a 20cm square tin

4. Bake it on 180C for approximately an hour

1 tub of cream cheese 

Knob of butter
