This is another recipe inspired by Vegan Vitality (still on sale at Amazon from 1 pence!!!).
225g wholemeal self raising flour (or add 2 teaspoons of baking powder to plain flour)
2 teaspoons All Spice
225g grated carrots
2 Tablespoons sunflower oil
75g muscavado sugar
4 Tablespoons Golden Syrup (maple syrup would work just as good)
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 Tablespoon soya milk.
Heat the oven to 180 ceslsius (340 fahrenheit).
Grease a loaf pan.
In a big bowl sift together the flour, all spice, grated carrot and raisins and mix together really well.
In a small saucepan gently heat the margarine, sunflower oil, sugar and golden syrup. Bring to a boil and immediately take off the heat. Add the mashed bananas then mix everything into the flour bowl. Add the soya milk and give everything a really good mix.
Pour into the greased loaf pan and bake in the middle of the oven for 65-70 mins.
Cool in the tin for a few minutes then turn out onto a wire rack and let cool completely.
Leave as is and serve with lashing of vegan butter or decorate with orange butter cream made from margarine, icing sugar, fresh orange juice and grated rind of an orange.
