Carrot Cake

Marina cooked us this carrot cake. It was delicious. She kindly gave me the recipe.
5 oz 150 g vegan margarine
8 oz 225 g granulated sugar
4 oz 125 g sultanas

8 oz 225 g carrots, peeled
5 1/2 oz 140 g strong flour, sieved
5 1/2 oz 140 g wholemeal flour
4 level tsp baking powder
Wash the sultanas in hot water and drain.
Place the margarine, sugar, sultanas and water in a pan. Bring to the boil slowly and simmer until the sugar is dissolved.
Leave to cool.
Grate the carrot and mix in.
Mix in both flours and baking powder.
Put the mixture into a greased and lined 1 Lb loaf tin. Smooth the top.
Bake at 350 F, 180 C, Gas Mark 4 for an hour.
Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
Slice to serve.
Will keep in an airtight tin for a week.
