  • 1 cup of spelt flour
  • 1 + 1/4 cup of white self-raising flour 
  • 2 large grated carrots 
  • 1 red skinless & grated apple
  • 1 + 1/2 cup of brown sugar 
  • 2-3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 trimmed fresh ginger
  • 1tsp powder ginger
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 cup of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp baking powder

PREPARATION

  • Mix sugar and flour together in a large bowl
  • Stir well the dry ingredients
  • Add the grated carrots, apple, ginger, salt & cinnamon to the dry mixture
  • Separate the yolk from the white of the eggs
  • Whisk the whites separately in a different bowl to create your fabulous marenga 
  • Whisk the yolk of the eggs in a separate bowl
  • Add first the yolk to the rest of the mixture and stir well
  • Then carefully add the marenga to the rest of the mixture
  • Add the cognac
  • Add the b.powder
  • Lastly add the olive oil (tip: if too oily, you may need to add some more self-raising flour, so overall the self-raising flour will be approx. 1+ 1/2 cups)
  • Stir everything well

BAKE TIME

  • Grease a cake tin with some olive oil
  • Place the cake tin in the oven (approx.45 minutes to an hour: 220* for the first 10-15 minutes; then 180* degrees)

NB: Instead of a large cake tin, you could prepare the cake  in two smaller ones as in the photos!
