My YUMMY Sweet Potato Cake
(same can be used to make Banana or Carrot)

Pre-Heat Oven to 180c for a fan forced oven
Butter your tin & coat with flour for easy extraction.

2 Cups of grated Sweet Potato, Banana or Carrot
125grams of Unsalted Butter
3/4 Cup of Sugar
2 Eggs
2 Cups of Self Raising Flour
1/2 teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda
2 Tablespoons of Milk

Cream the Butter & Sugar together & then add the Eggs & the Milk.
Sift the Flour & Bicarb into the mixture & then
fold in the Sweet Potato (Banana or Carrot)

Cooking time
30 mins - 45 mins

Depending on your oven & the main ingredient.
Push lightly on the cake & if it springs back up it's cooked
or you can stick a knife in the center & pull it out. If the knife is clean
then it's cooked if not just leave it in for a little longer.

Allow it to cool slightly before you take it out of the tin. Depending on
the Main ingredient used you can also make the icing for it.
I like to make Vanilla Icing as everyone tends to like it.

For Vanilla Icing
2 drops of Vanilla Essence
2 Tablespoons of Butter
1 Cup of Icing Sugar

Cream the sugar & Butter together then add the Vanilla Essence

I hope you ALL enjoy it like my family & i do.
Happy Cooking!
