Our Head Chef Adam and Cook Oriana have created the most delicious carrot cake and we have the recipe for you. Carrots are not only delicious, but also offer a number of health benefits and that is why we love to bake with them. Some of the key health benefits of carrots include:

  1. Improved vision: Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is essential for good vision, and a deficiency can lead to night blindness and other vision problems.
  2. Enhanced immune function: Carrots are a good source of vitamin C, which helps to boost the immune system and fight off infections and diseases.
  3. Lowered risk of heart disease: The fibre in carrots can help to lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.
  4. Cancer prevention: Carrots contain compounds called carotenoids, which have been linked to a reduced risk of certain types of cancer, including lung and breast cancer.
  5. Improved digestion: The fibre in carrots can help to regulate digestion and promote regular bowel movements.
  6. Skin health: The antioxidants in carrots can help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals, and may even help to prevent wrinkles and other signs of ageing.
