Carrot Cake

Winter vegetables give you so many options.

It is impossible to resist shiny red carrots. They simply becon me to use them in various ways. Gajar Ka halwa tops the list. After that comes my all time favorite Carrot Cake.

I have used only walnuts in the cake as my son doesn't like raisins. You can add 1/4 cup raisins.

I often make this cake with rum soaked fruits. It elevates the cake to the next level.

I have used fresh grated ginger root. You can easily replace it with 1/2 tsp ginger powder. Mix it with the dry ingredients.

A very moist and delectable cake.
