Carrot Cake

               This is the cake i made for mother's day. :).Its quiet similar to the butter cake.Usually carrot cakes are made with vegetable oil.I replaced it with melted butter.And the carrot requires the addition of powdered cinnamon.Here is the recipe.


Self-raising flour-300 gm
Sugar-300 gm
Butter-300 gm
Egg-300 gm(will count to 5 approx)
Vanilla essence-3 tbsp
Carrot-4 or 5 grated finely
Powdered cinnamon-2 tbsp
Mixed nuts-a cup


  1. Heat butter lightly in microwave.Then add sugar to it.Mix it well using a spatula.Mix in a deep curved large bowl
  2. Beat it using a hand mixer.Mix well.Then add egg one by one and keep beating the mixture.See that u beat in the same direction.
  3. Then add the self raising flour.Mix it with spatula.Then use the beater and mix well.Add the vanilla essence.Then add the grated carrot and the nuts and beat the mixture.
  4. preheat the oven to 175 deg for 15 mins(this temp depends on the type of oven you are using)Mean time spread butter over the cake tray.Pour the beaten mixture.Bring down the oven temp to 150.Keep the cake tray inside the oven and cook the cake(takes approx 1 hr).
For frosting i used the readymade fudge pen available in market :)
