Carrot Cake

Carrot cakes are one of my favourites and my son had a good basic recipe from school that we added some pineapple and walnuts too.

The result is a fairly dense, moist, fruity carrot cake that is very tasty.


  • 2/3 cup of vegetable oil (olive oil works great, not virgin)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (not too sweet)
  • 3/4 cup self raising plain flour
  • 1/4 cup wholemeal self raising flour
  • 1/3 cup saltanas
  • 1/3 cup diced canned pineapple (drained)
  • 1/3 cup diced raw walnuts
  • 2 large carrots grated


  • 250 grams cream cheese
  • 35 grams icing sugar (not too sweet)
  • Whole lemon or orange zest


  • Mix all ingredients in a large bowl
  • Place into 6″ greased baking tray or un-greased silicone tray
  • Cook in pre-heated Z Grill at 190ºC for 25-30min until golden brown and no dough when probed
  • Let cool on rack (not directly on plate or board) then apply icing
  • Whip icing ingredients and place in fridge until ready to coat the cake

Delivery FAQ

1. Why do the Click & Collect options cost money and have a transit time?

We partner with multiple freight companies to use their depots as a pickup points. This means in most cases, we’ll need to dispatch your order out from one of our three warehouses in Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane. This option often costs significantly less than home deliveries especially for non-metro areas.

2. Where exactly is your Click & Collect location?

You will receive the exact pick up address once your order is ready for pick up. As part of our agreement with our partnering freight companies, we are not to share the exact pickup location prior to that.

3. Will the grill fit my car?

Our grills will fit in most hatchback vehicles and UTEs, however it may struggle to fit in a standard sedan. If you want to be sure, you can check out the dimensions of the boxes on our packing and freight page.

4. Why are some Click & Collect options cheaper?

The prices of the Click & Collect options vary from location to location. We do our best to get you the lowest freight price by comparing rates from multiple carriers.

5. When will I receive my order?

We usually dispatch your order the following business day after receiving it. It will then take roughly takes 1-3 days for metro orders and 3-7 days for regional orders.
