Eggless Carrot Cake and Award

This is my second egg-less cake and again the result is awesome!!! It came out very moist and had beautiful texture. Again I replaced the eggs with yogurt and looks like its working for me.

This is a very flavorful cake especially the spices add inviting flavor to it. The carrots provide nice color. Try it for your self, you will love it !




Ingredients:

*Whole wheat bleached flour - 1 cup
Carrots - 2
Indian curd (thick) or Yogurt - 1/2 cup
Canola oil - 1/2 cup
Brown sugar - 2/3 cup
Nutmeg powder- 1tsp
Cinnamon powder - 1tsp
Vanilla essence - 1tsp
Milk 1tbsp
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Salt -1/4 tsp
Raisins - handful
Walnuts, chopped - handful

Method

Pre- heat the oven at 360 degree Fahrenheit and grease the baking pan and keep it aside

Combine all the dry ingredients [except sugar] and sieve it through at least 2 times

Blend oil, thick yogurt, sugar and vanilla with a beater for 1 minute at medium speed

Next fold in the dry ingredients and mix gently without running the mixer

Add milk if the batter looks dry and mix with hand mixer for 2 minutes at medium speed [the batter should not be runny. It is on the thicker/denser side]

Throw in walnuts and raisins and pour the batter in a greased cake or muffin pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the tooth-pick inserted comes out clean (In my observation, cakes with yogurt take little longer to bake. Don't be surprised if takes more than 25 min)

Let it cool on a cooling tray for 1 hr before slicing

Notes:
* You can use 1/2 cup regular whole flour + 1/2 cup all purpose flour [maida] also
The cake is just sweet....if you want more, increase the sugar content.

great cake...

Prerna said...

hi Renu,

baking soda and baking powder both 1/2 tsp? just wanted to recheck with you.

Renu said...

@ Prerna
Yes, both are 1/2 tsp. Make sure you use thick yogurt. Also, cakes with yogurt take little longer to bake.

sweta said...

Great cake!!can't wait to try. Just wanted to clear avfew doubts - 2 carrots meaning approximately one cup? And can I use eno instead of baking soda?

Renu said...

@ Sweta: you can add 1 cup of carrots. It is OK. I really don't know if you could substitute baking soda with eno, have never tried. I feel it should be fine, but not sure. If you decide to use, do let me know the results. Good luck.

Itisha Parekh said...

hii... ur cake looks awesome
can i use white sugar in place of brown sugar ??? wat difference will it make ?? reply soon :)

Renu said...

@ Itisha,
Yes you can use white sugar. Doesn't make a whole lot of difference in terms of texture. Its just brown sugar is in thing. I don't think nutritionally it is significantly different. Also, brown sugar sometimes gives color. Now a days I don't necessarily use brown sugar. Hope I am not too late with my reply
