How to make individual cakes of carrot raisins and rum

Preheat the oven to 180ºC and prepare small rectangular molds. I have used these which were actually ice cream molds but I really like them because they leave the shape of a chocolate bar on one side, and so you can share the cake if you don't want to eat it whole.

For the dough, we start by mixing the almond with the flour and the cinnamon. In a bowl, put the grated carrot and the rehydrated and chopped raisins with the rum and oil. In another we beat the eggs and sugar, adding the flour mixture, the impeller or chemical yeast and the salt.

Then we add the mixture of carrots and raisins mix well until we have ready the dough for baking. Fill the molds that we are going to use, trying not to exceed 2/3 of their capacity to prevent the dough from overflowing. Bake for approximately 20 minutes until the sponge cake is curdled, which we will check with a skewer.

Let the individual biscuits cool in the oven and remove them afterwards when they are cold. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve with a fresh coffee or a very aromatic tea.
