Carrot Bars:

  3. Use a wooden spoon to mix the sugar, oil and egg in a large bowl, then stir in the carrot, raisins and zest.
  4. Sift in flour, soda and spices.
  5. Stir until just combined, then pour into the pan.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a skewer inserted in centre comes out clean.
  7. Cool slightly, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. 

Icing (Optional):

  1. Sift icing sugar into a bowl and stir with 1-2 teaspoons warm water to form a smooth, soft icing.
  2. Drizzle over slice with a teaspoon, then leave to set for 10 minutes.
