rsz_carrot_cakesThere are times when you would like to drift from the ordinary to bake something different for the occasion of Christmas. But to my surprise, during my constant struggle to bake something different something, I ended up baking something extraordinarily superb. This Christmas, I thought of baking Carrot Cake rather than the same Plum Cake. The cake turned out to be absolutely lovely and some of my guests also demanded the secret recipes for the same which I later thought should be kept as a secret. Meanwhile, if you are a lazy lad, then it is best to shop for cakes in Mumbai online and at the same time it can be delivered with absolute ease to the destination of your choice. You can order cake online in Mumbai easily since you get a lot of options to choose from and it can be ordered from the comfort of your home.

Well, baking a cake at home come with their own merits. You can customize the cake as per your choice and preference. This time unlike every other time I thought of going with the healthy ingredients. Hence, I have used yoghurt which turns out to be an excellent egg replacer and in addition have used olive oil along with it. The super soft texture of the cake made everybody salivate there tongue. Therefore, after a long time I am disclosing my secret recipe with all of you.


Maida – 3/4 cup (135 gms)
Wheat flour – 1/4 cup (35 gms)
Grated carrot – 1/2 cup heaped
Curd – 3/4 cups (200 ml)
Olive oil – 1/4 cup (60 ml)
Milk – 2.5 tbsp
Granulated Sugar -1/2 cup (110 gms)
Vanilla essence – 1/2 tsp 
Cinnamon powder – 1/4 tsp (optional)
Baking powder – 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda – 1/2 tsp
Salt -1/4 tsp
Walnuts, chopped


For making a carrot cake it is important that you grate the carrots. One you are done with the carrots, keep them aside and sieve maida with wheat flour, salt, baking soda and powder. Take another bowl and add curd, sugar, milk and olive oil.

You can add flavour to the cake to make it taste even more delicious. Add cinnamon powder, vanilla essence and mix it well. You have to now gently fold the carrots in the mixture of maida and wheat flour.

Whist the batter till the time it is both smooth and creamy. Now add walnuts into the batter and keep some walnuts to sprinkle it on top of the cake as garnishing. Now you cake batter is ready, so preheat the oven at 182 degree for about 10 mins. Laying butter paper on the tin will prevent the cake from sticking to the tin. But make sure that you put the butter paper at the bottom of the tin only and not on its sides. And grease it well with butter and maida. You have to bake the cake for approximately 20 minutes and to test whether the cake is ready or not the best way to test is by inserting a toothpick inside, if it comes out clean then your cake is ready to be served. Allow the cake to cool down proper before slicing.
