I found this recipe for Christmas Brownies on the BBC site; my daughter made some yesterday - really good. We didn't have any cranberries in the cupboard so she used sultanas

Passion Cake

Ingredients
10 oz Plain Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
6 oz soft light brown sugar
2 oz chopped walnuts
1 ripe banana, mashed
3 Eggs,beaten
8 oz grated Carrots
6 oz Soya or Sunflower oil

Icing
3 oz Butter, softened
3 oz Cream Cheese
6 oz Icing Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence

Grease and line two 8" sandwich tins Set oven to 350F, 180C, Gas 4

Sift Flour, Baking powder and Bicarb together and mix in the remaining ingredients; beat well.

I use a food processor with a fine grater attachment to grate the carrots and mash the banana. You can also use the food processor to beat the eggs into the carrot/banana mix.

Divide between tins. Bake for 30-40 minutes.

Icing: Beat ingredients together until fluffy; sandwich and ice cake. You can increase the icing ingredients to 4:4:8. Make sure the butter is soft otherwise you end up with small lumps of butter in the cheese/sugar mix.

As an experiment, last weekend I made up the mixture and filled 24 large cup cake cases (2" diameter) cooked for 15 to 18 minutes. The icing covered them all (no "filling"). Lovely!

My daughter made a parsnip and maple syrup cake on Tuesday and, much to everyone's surprise given the main ingredient, it was delicious! :D
If all is not lost, then where is it?

Yes I can see that working, good parsnips are just as sweet as carrots :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
