  • plain flour 300g, mixed in a large bowl with a pinch of salt
  • egg 1, beaten
  • oranges 2, juiced and zested
  • carrots 100g, peeled and grated
  • butter 75g, melted


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 190c/fan 170c/gas 5. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with squares of baking parchment, pushing them down to make little cases. Whisk together the wet ingredients with the carrots, then stir this into the dry ingredients, but don’t overmix – it’s better if it’s a bit lumpy. Spoon into the muffin tin and bake for 20-25 minutes until risen.
