How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 180C, 350F, Gas Mark 4. Line a 450g (1lb) round cake tin with greaseproof paper or baking parchment, or use a non-stick tin.
  • In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, ground corriander, spice, sultanas, and diced mangoes. Add the grated carrots and stir well.
  • Mix the beaten egg with the milk. Stir into the mixture and mix well. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the oven for 50-55 minutes. To test if the cake is cooked, insert a skewer into the cake. The skewer should come out clean.
  • Leave to cool.
  • Before serving, make the topping (if using) by mixing together the quark, orange zest and icing sugar until smooth.
  • Spread over the top of the cake. Sprinkle with poppy seeds.
