I’ve been wanting to make a carrot cake for a little while now and I wanted to give it a bit of a twist, something to make it stand out from the crowd. Well I have done just that! Adding Gogi Berries to it has given it a lift and a flash of colour, I love it!
I’ve used Gogi berries before and was looking for other recipes I could adapt so that I could make even more use of this yummy fruit.
Carrot and Gogi Berry Loaf Cake
Add a twist of something special to this lovely Carrot cake with these super cool Gogi Berries
- 50 g Dark brown sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 125 ml Rapeseed Oil
- 3 large Carrots
- 50 g Gogi Berries
- 150 g Plain Flour
- half teaspoon Baking Powder
- half teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda
- 1 teaspoon Mixed Spice
- 30 ml Maple Syrup
Grate the carrots (these will be part of your wet ingredients)
Mix all of the dry ingredients together apart from the Gogi Berries in one bowl then set aside.
In a food mixer put all of the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
Combine together and add the Gogi Berries.
Pour into a medium loaf tin
Bake for 35 mins on 170oc
This is great to use up some of those extra ingredients you might have around the store cupboard. Another easy recipe which big results is my Cheese Scones which are super quick. If you fancy a sweet treat try my Ultimate Chocolate Brownies!
If you want to rehydrate dried Gogi berries then pop them in a bowl or cup, pour over boiling water and leave for 10 minutes. Drain well and then they are plump and juicy, ready to use.
