    Found this in the morrisons magazine but can't work out how many syns it would be? its got no butter or oil in,it says one serving provides: 182 cal, 18g sugar,6g fat,1.7g saturates, 0.5g salt.
    4 eggs
    200g runny honey
    300g grated carrots
    zest of 1 orange
    1 tsp mixed spice
    1 tsp ground allspice
    50g raisins
    50g currants
    50g walnuts, roughly chopped
    275g plain wholemeal flour
    2 1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt

    For the lemon icing: 200g light cream cheese (could use quark instead?)
    50g icing sugar (Sweetner instead?)
    Zest of 1 lemon.

    1. Pre heat oven to 170/325f/gas 3
    beat together eggs & honey until well combined then stir through the carrots, orange zest, spices, raisins, currents & walnuts.
    2. mix together the flour, baking powder & salt. Add half the carrot mixture, stir then add the rest & mix well until combined.
    3. Pour into a 20 X 20cm cake tin & put in oven for 1 hour.
    4. Mix all the lemon icing ingredients together until smooth, allow to set in the fridge.
    5. After 1 hour remove the cake from the oven.
    6. Once cool, spread with the icing 7 lemon zest . Keep in the fridge.
