  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 260g light soft brown sugar (approximately 1.2 cups)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat & Prepare: Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F). Prepare two 6-inch baking tins with baking paper and grease the sides.
  2. Mix & Combine: Sift and mix all dry ingredients. In another bowl, mix milk and apple cider vinegar, then add oil and vanilla after it curdles. Combine wet and dry ingredients with the egg or flax egg and grated carrot. Allow the batter to rest if dry to moisten the carrots.
