  • Then add vanilla essence and mix it.
  • Now slowly add the flour mixture and fold it gently with a spatula
  • Then add the carrot and fold it gently until the ingredients are even.
  • Pour the cake mixture into the greased tray. Make sure to fill tray only to half, it will increase the volume.

Tips:

  • Add more sugar if you need, recipe here is for medium sweet.
  • Instead of chopping the carrot into fine pieces, can grate the carrot and use it.
  • I used one glass tray and one silicone tray for baking the cake.
