Moist Carrot Cake

Yesterday when I opened the fridge, to my surprise I saw a large pile of carrots. J has been especially fond of buying carrots these days and that too in bulk, every time he goes to the market. The first thought that came to my mind was to prepare a carrot dish. It was then that I realised that I hadn’t baked anything in the last two odd months. Carrot Cake!!!!!! That’s it.

Making a Carrot cake to D’s absolute liking has been a distant dream for me as he hadn’t liked my last two iterations. So this time I decided to try the Moist Carrot Cake from Chow.com, which has a slightly different style from my usual carrot cake recipes. I gave a sigh of relief only after D gave his approval. Even his friends who disliked carrot cakes devoured this one.

Another recipe for keeps.. πŸ™‚

    According to the quantity required, you could increase the quantity of ingredients proportionally. In case you need to make 2 cakes, double the ingredients.

    Hi Christina,
    Oil gives a bit more moist, soft texture to the cake as compared to butter.
