Preheat the oven to 180C. Lightly oil your baking tray and line it with baking paper.

Wash the carrots and snap them in half, then place them in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.

Add the brown sugar and flour to the food processor, then grate in the lemon zest and add three tablespoons of olive oil. Blitz in the food processor until you have a smooth batter, then pour the batter into the baking tray and bake in the oven for 12 minutes.

As soon as the cake is ready, turn the cake out onto a clean tea towel and peel off the baking paper. Use the short ends of the tea towel to roll the sponge up as the cake cools to help it keep its shape.

Snap half the white chocolate into a bowl and melt in the microwave, then finely chop the stem ginger balls and mix into the chocolate with the lime juice and cream cheese.

Once the cake is completely cooled, sprinkle it with the extra brown sugar and spread over the chocolate mixture.

To serve, place the cake on a serving board, brush the sponge with the stem ginger syrup and grate over the remaining white chocolate.

Your delicious carrot cake is now ready to eat.
