Moist Carrot Cake
With 3 days off last weekend and no travelling in mind, there was ample time for some baking. LL wanted to learn an easy no-fuss cake so the Moist Carrot Cake came to mind.
The recipe goes like this...
200g shredded carrot (1 medium-sized carrot)
50g walnuts - chopped
70g raisins - chopped
70g canned pineapple - sliced into small pieces
225ml corn oil
180g castor sugar
200g flour + 1 tsp baking powder + 1 tsp soda bicarb - sieve together
1/8 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
*Beat eggs and sugar together till sugar dissolves
*Slowly add in the corn oil, beat further
*Add in the cinnamon and vanilla
*Stir in all the chopped/shredded ingredients
*Lastly, fold in the sieved flour & combine well
*You can bake them in papercups like this...
Or in a 9" square tin like this...
*Bake cake in 190-200 deg.C for about 35 minutes (till golden brown)
See... wasn't that easy?
