75g of granualated sweetener.

1/4 tsp of lemon extract.

Preheat your oven to 200c and line a sheet pan or swiss roll tin and spray with frylight.

In a large bowl crumble up the the wheat biscuits and add the yogurt, leaving out the sultanas and baking powder, add the grated carrot, whole egg, mixed spice, lemon and orange zest, vanilla extract, sweetener and mixed well.
