Moist Banana & Carrot Cake

Ingredients:

  • Butter, for greasing
  • 1 cup ready-to-eat dried apricots, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup walnut, roughly chopped
  • 1 lb. ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 large carrot, about 4 oz., shredded
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Topping:

  • 2/3 cup cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons lemon curd

Method:

Grease a 2 lb. loaf pan and line with nonstick parchment paper. Place the apricots in a small saucepan with the measured water, bring to a boil, and simmer for 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender or food processor and blend to a thick puree.

Put all the other cake ingredients in a large bowl and add the apricot puree. Mix well, then spoon into the prepared pan.

Bake in a preheated oven, 350 degrees F, for 1 ½ hours or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.

Beat together the cream cheese and lemon curd and spread over the top of the loaf.

Serves 14 slices
