This one used to be quite popular in my family and my mom ended up making it for us every now and then. It tastes lovely. Do try it out…I will be waiting to hear from you !

I simply love baking cakes. If not for the calories, I could have baked one every day! Nothing beats the gentle aroma wafting from the oven as the cake gets done. I remember how excited my sister and myself used to get on getting back home and smelling a hot freshly baked cake! I am sharing here a simple carrot cake recipe which also happens to be one of my favorite. Coming to think of it, there are not many cakes that I do not like but nevertheless!! :)
