This is such a simple cake to make!  It is slightly healthy, you can at least tell yourself that!  After all, what is so wrong with eggs, carrots, walnuts and ginger?

Here is what you do

Bung everything into a stand mixer and mix it all together

Second, Line a 23cm/9in cake tin with bake-o-glide or baking parchment and pour in the mixture

ElectricKit Aga – 170 degrees – Bake on the second set of runners down from the top with the cold plain shelf beneath your bake

Bake for 1 hour (keep checking)  and leave for 10 minutes to cool in the tin before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely

When the cake is cool, mix the icing sugar into the cream cheese and lemon juice and spread over the top of cake.
