    METHOD:
    Grease and line the base of a 20cm square tin with greaseproof. Preheat oven to Gas 4, 180°C.
    Place the carrots, sugar, oil, yogurt and eggs into a food processor and blend until smooth (if no processor available, grate the carrots and mix well with the other ingredients)

    Heh, thank you.

    This recipe must have escaped the ‘private’ tickbox in diigo. In any case, I have a food blog, which I should update: http://www.cookingforhippos.wordpress.com

    The Flea used to be one of my favourites – well, everyone’s got a Donne phase, don’t they? :)
