Method

 
Preheat the oven to 160 ºC (325 ºF). Grease a 20 cm cake tin with margarine or butter. Cream the butter and castor sugar together until light and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time and beat well. Sift the dry ingredients together and add the oats. Add the egg mixture and mix well. Add the grated carrots and mix. Turn into the prepared tin and bake for 30 - 45 minutes or until a testing skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre of the cake. Turn the cake on to a wire rack and cool. Cream the butter and slowly sift in the icing sugar, beating well. Add the vanilla essence and stir in the cream cheese. (Do not overblend or the icing will become watery.) Makes 1 medium-sized cake.
