Eggless Carrot Cake

Eggless_Carrot_Cake_1 Recently I got some cake moulds as gift from my daughter and son-in-law. Some include small cake moulds. Those were looking so cute and I wanted to bake in those moulds at the earliest.

Here is eggless carrot cake using those small beautiful moulds. I love this recipe more because of less time needed to prepare. For a change I used jaggery for sweetness to give a nice taste and colour to the cake. Also I used vegetable oil instead of butter.

Ingredients

  • All purpose flour – 2 cupEggless_Carrot_Cake_2
  • Grated carrot – 3 cup
  • Powdered jaggery – 1 cup (if carrots are sweet or you like less sugar, then reduce it to ¾ cup)
  • Vegetable oil – 1 cup (I used sunflower oil)
  • Curd – ½ cup
  • Baking powder – 2 tea spoon
  • Baking soda – 1 tea spoon
  • Cinnamon and cardamom powder – ½ table spoon each
  • Vanilla essence – 1 table spoon
  • Cashew and raisins – 1 table spoon each
  • Salt – pinch

Method

  • In a blender add jaggery, oil, curd and grind it for few seconds till jaggery is dissolved in oil and curd.
