1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
1⁄4 cup whole wheat flour
1⁄4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
1⁄4 cup orange juice
1 cup finely grated carrot
2 - 4 tsp light cream cheese, at room temperature
2 - 3 tbsp honey
- In bowl, stir flours with sugar, Apple Pie Spice, baking soda and Sea Salt.
- In another bowl, whisk egg with vanilla extract, then whisk in oil and orange juice. Pour over dry mixture and stir just until mixed. Fold in carrot.
- Scrape into 2 large or 4 small, lightly oiled mugs. Microwave on high until cooked through, 2–2 1⁄2 minutes.
- While still warm, top each with a spoonful of cream cheese and a drizzle of honey.
Use all white flour for a lighter cake or mix in whole wheat to boost fibre.
Flavour Changer: Use crème fraîche instead of cream cheese.
