My husband has grown the best carrots he has ever tried this year. The first few rows got flea beetle and failed but the next two have matured beautifully and are great. To celebrate I made my first carrot cake ever. using the Mary Berry recipe on BBC Good Food site. It is also the first time I have used vegetable oil method.
I see GB Bake off is doing batter this week - can't think of anything to make beyond pancakes or toad in the hole so I will probably stick to a Victoria sponge this week!
