Carrot and Mango Cake

This cake has no fat and contains carrot, mango and sultanas so.....it's basically good for you! It's extremely dense, a lot like a pudding and very tasty.

You will need:
225g (8oz) plain flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
175g soft dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground corriander
1 teaspoon mixed spice
115g (4oz) sultanas
115g (4oz) finely chopped mango
450g (1lb) grated carrot
1 egg
250ml milk

Cream cheese frosting (ok, this part has fat!)
115g (4oz) cream cheese (low fat optional)
115g (4oz) icing sugar
Zest of one orange

Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Beat the egg in the milk and mix this with the dry ingredients. Place in either in one large round cake tin or two victoria sponge tins. Cook at 180C / 350 F for around an hour (I cooked this in two halves, a single cake may take longer) or until a knife comes out clean.

When cool, mix the cream cheese, icing sugar and half of the orange zest. Spread this on the cake and finish with the remaining zest.
