Tuesday dinner 1: Carrot, zucchini and sultana nut cake!

I took the banana & carrot cake recipe and did it with carrots and zucchini instead. Then I added sultanas and some of the leftover crushed almonds from the rocky raisin almond cookies.

leftover nuts

This was for dinner on tuesday night. We had a meeting at my sister-in-law’s place with some friends. She was making dinner for everyone so I helped with a few dishes. This was for dessert . Probably not the best event for an experiment but it had to be done sometime.  

I made two salads and a vegetable in addition to the cake.

I did the banana & carrot cake recipe with zucchini and carrot, then added the nuts and sultanas.

cup, little bit of nuts at the bottom, top up with sultanas
add to the flour mix
grated carrots and zucchini
batter ready for carrot and zucchini
in they go
all mixed up
in goes the flour mix
and the batter is ready for the pan

I thought it would look nicer as a loaf, but I don’t have any bread pans yet.

testing

There’s actually a proper instrument for this. I stick a fork in the cake every time the baking time is done. If it comes out with a little wet batter it’s not ready. If it comes out clean, it’s done!

all clear!
bottom got stuck

Oh dear! it got stuck on the bottom of the pan. Oh well!

got a crack when I flipped it over

Then it cracked when I flipped it over

hmmm hmmm!
