Place dates. grated carrot, dried fruit and orange zest in a bowel. Add the sugar, oil and 2 tbsp of milk.
In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and coriander.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and lightly stir.
Add 1 to 5 tbsp of milk if the mixture feels more like dough than batter. The mixture ought to be firm enough to hold onto mounds on a baking tray, but too wet to shape by hands.
