Carrot Cake


by: Divya Uday

March is a month of celebration for us.With my kids and hubbys birthday all lined up in March, its certainly the month I fire up my oven the most. While the kids choose to stick to chocolate cake all the time, the hubbys birthday I wanted to bake anything but chocolate and I spotted a bunch of carrots from my refrigerator , so carrot cake it was.I followed almost the same recipe as my vanilla cake but reduced the sugar content and added few of the Indian spices and Bingo ! that was a perfect moist and yummy carrot cake, that the husdand and the kids just loved.
