Add the oat bran and lift the mixture with a spoon to incorporate air.
Add the eggs and egg white one at a time to the margarine mixture, adding 15 ml of the cake flour mixture with each addition.
Beat after each addition for about one minute.
Stir in the remaining dry ingredients.
Finally add the raw carrot, apple and sultanas.
Turn the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until done (a testing skewer inserted into the centre of the cake should come out clean).
