    What 1 Other has said

    • This is a great tea brack but a bit sweet for my palate. My solution is to used mixed fruit with peel rather than sultanas; use 50-100g (it doesnt seem to make much difference!)'brown sugar and 100g of grated carrot rather than the suggested amount; 2 med eggs not 1 large; and spice it up with cinnamon and mixed spice (scant 1 tsp ea). But all the principles are the same. Do give me credit if you use it on the site please, you know how popular carrot cake is! Best wishes, Alex Brunel
