This recipe was given to my Mum by one her best friends (my god mother) years ago. I have never converted the measurements as I don't feel the need to (my scales measure both metric and imperial).
I made the cake below about a month ago, so ensure it is aged when Mum slices it open later this week.
1 Carrot Grated
1 Teaspoon Lemon Essence
1 Teaspoon Almond Essence
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
1 Tablespoon Brandy
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
3. Cream butter and sugar together using a electric beater.
4. Beat in eggs and essence, one at a time (beating after each addition).
5. Sift flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves over he mixed fruit, apple and carrot.
6. Add egg mixture and fold in.
7. Lastly fold in brandy.
