No butter or oil in this wholemeal carrot cake that gets its extra moisture from soaking the sultanas and carrot overnight in tea.
I have made that many carrot cakes i have lost count but was looking for something fat free, this recipe is an absolute disaster, the method isn't fully explained and there is no oven temperature, the cake came out of the oven way to heavy to rise becauase there are too may ingredients weighing it down. Nuts, cherries, weetabix,seeds, coconut ???????????? none of them are necessary apart fom maybe a few chopped walnuts, mine went straight in the bin o - 21 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

I made this twice. Love it as a low fat alternative although I didn't ice mine to stay healthy. Made sure I left it on a lower heat 150 for 1.5 hours so it wasn't soggy in the middle. Will be making it again & varying ingredients according to what I have in the cupboard. Great tea time treat. - 26 May 2015 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
