- Preheat your oven to 160 degrees C fan forced (or equivalent temperature for your oven). Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
- Combine all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add the margarine, egg and juice and stir well. At this point my mixture was a little stiff so I also added 1 tbsp of milk.
- Stir in the zest and grated carrot.
- Pour into your prepared tin and pop in the oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
- While the cake is still hot, drizzle over the honey and spread with a pastry brush.
Here is a newish recipe that I tried today, adapted from my favourite banana loaf recipe given to me by my mum. I don't know how healthy it actually is but it "feels" healthy with the carrot...maybe I'm just trying to kid myself ;P it tastes good either way!
enjoy with a cup of tea or any beverage of your choice :)
Part of trying to watch less youtube has been substituting that time by doing other things, for example reading blogs. I love the chatty way that bloggers write, as though their talking directly to their readers, its like no other 'article' whether newspaper or magazine. These bloggers have become my inspirations so here they are:
'Fashionata' is the first blog that I started reading and i can't even remember how I came across it! She is a fashion blogger from Belgium now with a book called 'Little Black Book' which I can only assume is named after the wardrobe favourite. Her blog post range from her favourites from a fashion week to her oufit of the day.

Recently, like a lot of people my age, I've been pretty stressed about just life generally with having to make big, life changing decisions about my future and sometimes it gets a bit much and you need to concentrate on the good things in life. So, to help me with that, I created the 'All Good Things' jar. In essence, its a collection of something good or exciting or fun that has happened in my life every day.
What you need: a jar, coloured paper (it doesn't have to be, I just think it looks nicer) and a pen :)
heyy! First blog post...feels a bit strange,
I've decided to start a blog mainly to motivate me but also to see what happens, whether anything will come from it or whether this page will stay hidden within the depths of the internet never to be seen again. We'll see.
It's got to that time of year now where everyone's forgotten about their New Year's resolutions or at least trying to forget they every happened. I'm planning on revamping mine to make them perhaps more practical.
These are they: watch less Youtube (pff...that was never gonna happen...), eat healthier, be more creative, read my Bible more and keep a sketchbook-jounal. Most of there I've kept just about like I've written/drawn in my notebook nearly everyday and this has helped me to become more creative but the eating healthier thing...hmm.... not so good when chocolate cookies taste so good. So that's what I mean by 'Spring Cleaning', dusting off those resolutions and kicking them back into gear.... perhaps more like nudging them.
More to the point, with this blog I'm going to be posting recipes. some healthier than others, to encourage me to explore the world of food that is beneficial to you, not detrimental. Also, I'll post "little inspirations" based on what I've been doing/thinking etc.
Alright, we'll see what happens.
