Cartoon Apron Clipart
sieve the flour into a large mixing bowl
wash and peel the carrots
cut the tops and bottoms off the carrots
using the larger hole side of the grater,grate the carrots ,its a tricky job so be careful.
grate the rind (outside) of the orange on the smaller hole side of grater,make sure you remove all the carrot and orange rind from the inside of the grater.
add the cinnamon,baking powder and I added some raisins too,that’s just my choice!!
add in the grated carrot and orange into the bowl.
add in the brown sugar
mix all the remaining ingredients gently together
spoon out into the paper cases,making sure to have the same amount in each one ……as much as possible. Bake at 200 degrees for 20/25 mins
when cooked remove from the oven,allow to cool completely
you can make some cream cheese icing using this light cheese. it has less fat content,which is a bit healthier!!
put the cheese in a bowl and add a few teaspoons of icing sugar
the icing should look like this
spread out with a bitter knife or the back of a spoon
cut the left over orange into thin slices and then into quarters
pop the orange pieces on the top…and there you have them, you can freeze the without the icing ..but you probably wont need to !!!.
