Yumm Yumm Carrot Cake .... With a Twist of health


Carrot cake is one of the simplest things in the world .... where most people go wrong is the simplicity bit... Keep it simple and it will will hearts ... complicate it ... and it goes bleh ! Wont say much more simply sharing a recipe that I learnt ages ago and now I make a health twist to it . One winter morning my father got me really sweet baby carrots from the market and I decided to make this timeless cake that everyone loves .

Carrot Cake

Carrots 180g (grated)
Eggs 2 nos
Olive Oil 75 ml
Sugar 120g ( powdered)
Whole Wheat Flour 100g
Cinnamon powder ½ tsp
Nutmeg powder ½ tsp
Baking powder ¼  tsp
Soda bicarb ¼  tsp
Salt – a pinch
Raisins 50 g
Almonds 15 pcs chopped

  • Mix in all dry ingredients
  • Add the egg and olive oil and blend into a smooth paste
  • Add the carrots and the dry  fruits
  • Baked for 30 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius

 This too is super easy to make and low on cholesterol .... If there is a diabetic at home please use equivalent quantity of artificial sweetener

Ciao ! 


  1. Nutmeg and cinnamon both are used in carrot cake, must be aromatic and super tasty.
