175g light muscovado sugar
350g carrots, peeled and grated
1 tablespoon thick cut marmalade
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
200g self-raising flour
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Preheat the oven to 150C.
Grease and line a 13cm by 23cm loaf tin.
Beat the eggs with the oil and sugar, stir in the carrots, marmalade and poppy seeds.
Stir in the flour, bicarbonate of soda and mixed spice.
Mix well, pour into the tin, level the surface and bake for 75 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
