Recipe 119: Carrot Cake

Winter is the season of warmth, coziness and delicious food. I am yet to meet someone who doesn't love cooking and eating in the colder months. 

Winter is also the time for Christmas holidays; which also brings in tons of sweet treats.

My staple baking in winter is carrot cake and rum cake. Both are rich, spicy and perfect for winter evenings with a cup of tea or coffee. 

While I did share rum cake recipes previously, I realized I never wrote about carrot cake.

So, today I share my best ever carrot cake recipe that makes for a big fluffy spongy mouthfuls of carrot cake.

Ingredients:

  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1.5 cups grated carrots
  3. 1+1/4 cups sugar
  4. 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  5. 2.5 tsp. baking powder
  6. 1 tsp. cinnamon powder
  7. 1 tsp. vanilla essence
  8. 1/4 tsp. nutmeg powder
  9. 1/4 tsp. salt
  10. 3 eggs

Method:

Preheat oven at 150 degree celcius.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk sugar, eggs, oil, vanilla essence, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder and grated carrots. 

Meanwhile, sift the flour, salt and baking powder.

Add the dry flour mixture to the wet ingredients. 

Grease and flour a baking pans.

Pour the cake batter into the pan and bake at 180 degrees celcius for 1 hour or untill a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
