Eggless Almond Carrot Cake

Eggless Almond Carrot Cake

This is amazing combination of carrot and almonds. When ever I came across carrot cake I never saw almonds or any nuts along!!

And to make it worse when I was browsing once some1 had written carrot cake taste more like gajjar ka halwa!! My stepping ahead footsteps  towards baking a carrot cake all stopped!! There were 2 reasons
1) I do stove top baking so I make sure I use a fool proof recipe which can give a good result to my work done!! It isnt hard to bake on stove top but still I have had a bad experince with smelly cake with a totally wrong recipe hah I now have to take deep breathings until baking completes lolz,
2) What if it dont taste gud??? I'll have to land up eating everything myself which I cant do I think I can never tried haha.

I welcome Priya Shiva Of  http://priyakitchenette.blogspot.in/ with her lovely recipe of Eggless Almond Carrot Cake. We recently met via fb and hadnt been able to interact much, due to my own personal issues but the love and support which comes up is really humble!! Thank u Priya For Such A Wonderful Urself toMe!!

I am a full time mother busy running behind my little one. My greatest passion apart from family rests in cooking. I enjoy cooking and feel, if you get the ingredients right, anyone can cook. Do join me on my blogging journey at - http://priyakitchenette.blogspot.com


  This is the first time I'm guest blogging for my blogger friend Aara
Shaikh and thank you for letting me share my recipe on your blog. This
is a recipe for a Carrot cake with the goodness of Almonds and the
best part that it has no egg and no butter..


Eggless Almond Carrot Cake -

Ingredients:

Maida - 3/4 cup
Wheat flour - 1/4 cup
Grated carrot - 1/2 cup
Curd/Plain Yoghurt - 3/4 cups
Canola oil - 1/4 cup (you can also use olive oil or sunflower oil)
Milk - 3 tbsp
Granulated Sugar - 3/4 cup
Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Salt -1/4 tsp
Chopped Almonds - 3 tbsp



Method:

1)  Preheat oven at 180 °C

2) Sieve all purpose flour and wheat flour and keep it aside.

3) Add oil, curd, milk and sugar in a bowl and mix it well.

4) Now add all purpose flour, wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda,
vanilla essence, grated carrot and mix it well to form a smooth creamy
batter.

5) Grease a cake tin evenly with oil. You can also use butter paper.

6) Transfer the content into a cake tin and sprinkle the chopped almonds.

7) Bake at same temperature for 20 minutes. Check after 20 minutes by
inserting a toothpick at the center of the cake. If it comes out
clean, then your cake is done or else continue baking for 5 more
minutes and keep a watch on it.


Once the cake has cooled down, invert it on a wire rack and let it
cool down completely.


You can enjoy this cake with a hot cup of coffee!!

    1. Hello Sailaja Thank u for trying this cake that was pretty quick I must say!! Im gonna try this soon.
      Regarding Fluff up issue according to recipe I feel it should have fluffed a little atleast because baking soda and powder both has been used. Mostly Ive seen carrot cake is dense in nature. But If ur cake was extremely flat then I guess the issue should be with either baking powder or soda used. Any how i'll ask priya to reply ur quire :) Thank u for ur feedback

    2. Sailaja - Im sorry to hear that your cake did not fluff as I've baked it many times and if you follow the recipe to T it will turn out to be fluffy and soft. There are only 3 reasons for this cake not to fluff - 1) The sugar should completely dissolve before adding flour and the batter should be mixed well till its all creamy. 2) Issue with baking soda or baking powder. 3) The coils in your oven heating up fast.

      I hope this helps dear and thank you for trying my recipe :)
