Carrot Cake



Ingredients:

All purpose / Wheat flour     --    1 cup
Eggs                                    --    2 big eggs
Canola oil                            --    ½ cup
Baking powder                    --    1½ tsp
Powdered Sugar                  --    1 cup
Vanilla Essence                    --   1 tsp
Ground Cinnamon                --   1 tsp
Grated carrot                       --   1 cup
Chopped Nuts                     --   ¼ cup
Salt                                      --   a pinch

Preparation of Cake:

Sift the flour, salt and baking powder 4 -5 times. This helps to mix the baking powder thoroughly in the flour. Keep it aside.

In a large bowl beat the oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla essence. Add the ground cinnamon. Keep on mixing and add the flour mix spoon by spoon. Make sure that the flour is mixed well in the mixture before adding the next set. Fold in the grated carrots and the chopped nuts.


If the mixture is very thick, add milk to make it the required consistency.

Grease and flour a 9x9 inch pan. And pour the mixture into the pan.


Bake in a pre-heated oven at 175 degree Celsius (350 F) for 40 to 50 minutes. Check if a tooth pick comes out neat and if yes let it cool.
