Freefrom Carrot Cake with Cranberries
Gluten, lactose, milk, nightshade, nut, peanut, sesame & wheat free; can be soya free without the icing
I have substituted the traditional nuts in this cake with cranberries so that it is OK for nut allergics – and it helps use up all those excess cranberries after Christmas! However, if you wish to be more traditional, substitute 75g broken walnuts or pecans for the cranberries and use the juice of the whole orange rather than just half.
I really do not like my carrot cake iced (frosted) as I always find the icing far too rich – hence the icing-free picture – but if you do, you can make a very pleasant icing with a soya cream cheese.
