Started my culinary journey in 2007-2008, and think am half way decent cook when it comes to Indian cuisine, and now I have embarked my journey in baking too.

Recently I shared Tutti Frutti Cake, which I suppose is one of the easiest cake to bake, and now sharing this Carrot cake recipe, which I would still add is fairly easy too.

Carrot cake as the name suggests has carrot as the key ingredient along with Cinnamon and Walnuts. While walnuts offers a distinctive taste, cinnamon simply arouses and takes the appetite to whole next level 🙂

  9. For icing of this cake, I have used market bought readymade icing. Cut the cake from the middle and spread the icing all over on one part. Place another part on top of it and spread the icing again evenly on this part too.
