Welcome to the 4nd day of Baking Mania.

I was planning to post a microwave recipe today, then when I realized its Easter weekend, I thought why not try some carrot cake?  I took the base recipe from here. This time when I prepared the cake I didn’t add any walnuts as I was running out of walnuts. Instead added a handful of raisins. Also I went with regular milk instead of soy milk. Used additional milk to brush the top to get a soft crust. Any cream frosting will be good with this cake or simply whipping cream with fresh fruits would do too. Here is the simple carrot cake recipe. Have a great long weekend.

  2. Nice!I wanted a carrot cake recipe to try. My main issue is my food processor makes very thick and long gratings only. So I dont mind for cheese but for carrot, beetroot etc for baking recipes and halwa its awful to have such thick gratings. Might have to buy another attachment for finer grating before I try.

Would love hear back from you. Drop in your feedback and comments. Thanks
