Pete’s Scan Bran Carrot Cake
5 scan bran
300g/3 medium size carrots
3 Tbsp sweetener
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp nutmeg
Zest from 1 lemon
Break the scan bran into a mixing bowl and add boiling water, a bit at a time to soften them, mash into a smooth mix.
Grate the peeled carrots, drain as much liquid out of them as possible, and then place in a towel and wring out any remaining liquid. Add to mixing bowl along with the egg, sweetener and spices & lemon zest, mix well.
Preheat the oven to 180c and prepare a loaf tin, line with greaseproof paper cut to fit, spray with fry light.
Place on the middle shelf for 30 mins, insert a metal skewer into the middle of the cake and when you pull it out and it comes out clean, the cake is done.
Remove from the tin and allow to cool on a wire rack.
