Eggless Carrot Cake

Carrot cake

I have been waiting for long to bake the ever famous carrot cake and now came the occasion of having my little niece and nephew at home for summer holidays :)

Having school going kids around is super fun. They tell me their adventurous tales, play with me, entertain me with their lovely talks and nag me too ;) I'm having a busy schedule entertaining them and keeping them occupied by teaching some simple origami, cooking, music etc :)

The weekend that passed went on well with some baking too ;)

Got this recipe from a beautiful blog called food tale and made just a few changes to get my version.
Carrot cake1


All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cups
Powdered Sugar - 1 cup (I used brown sugar)
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Baking soda - 1 tsp
Cinnamon powder - 1 tsp
Salt - a pinch(skip this if you are using salted butter)
Carrot (grated) - 1 cup (around 2 medium sized carrots)
Melted butter - 1/4 cup
Cooking oil - 1/4 cup
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Water - 3/4 cup
Walnuts - 5

Carrot cake5


Sieve all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, powdered sugar and salt together in a bowl.

Add the cinnamon powder and grated carrots to it and mix well until evenly spread.

Now pour in the melted butter, cooking oil, water and vanilla essence and mix until well blended.

Do not over beat.

Carrot cake6

Preheat oven to 375°F or 190°C. Line the muffin tray with liners.

Fill muffin cups with batter upto 3/4th and bake it for 15-20 mins at 375°F or 190°C. Adjust the time according to your oven settings.

I baked 6 muffins and the rest in my 4" Silicon mould which took around 45 mins to bake at 190°C.

Check if cooked by inserting a skewer in the center. Once done, allow it to cool on a wire rack for a while.

Delicious carrot cakes are ready :)

Enjoy them warm :)

Carrot cake3

Grate the carrots finely.

Use normal white sugar instead of brown sugar to get a brownish orange shade of cake instead of brown ones. I missed to do that :( Anyways I like brown :P

You can completely replace the butter with cooking oil.

I enjoyed the cup cakes eating them as it is and served the larger one into slices along with vanilla ice cream. It definitely made a lovely dessert :)
