A carrot cake recipe for the winters
When the farmer’s market is flooded with those seasonal dark red carrots, which we often use for making Indian popular dessert, Gajar ka Halwa, I believe that is the perfect time to make some Carrot Cake as well. And, if you are looking for controlled portion size recipe in a cake, then this mug cake recipe is absolutely perfect for you.
Of late, I have become a huge fan of mug cakes. It is quick, easy to bake and then serve, and makes a perfect party dessert for my guests. In fact, I even bake mug cakes for myself over the weekend and chill them for my busy weekday breakfast option.
This recipe for carrot cake is absolutely fuss-free and totally forgiving if you want to play around with the ingredients. For instance, I have used a pinch of Cinnamon powder in this recipe for its sweet & warm aroma. However, it tastes equally good with freshly pounded Cardamom powder, instead of Cinnamon.
This is an oil based carrot cake recipe in a mug,which means it has mush less fat content as compared to those recipes which calls for butter. Also, I have used Brown Sugar instead of normal granulated sugar, which gives it a nice colour and moisture.
