This weekend was awesome , I had entered into a Cooking Trance..... :P . Like I told my exams has just got over , and I don't go out too much the best entertainment for me is COOKING. Both Saturday and Sunday I had tried several new recipes and it was the best time also surprisingly none of them turned into a total disaster :D . 

Some months back in my fav. channel "TLC" I saw one of my fav. chef "Rachel Allen" bake a Carrot Cake. She made it seem so easy and it looked wonderful and since then I had decided to try this cake but somehow it didn't turn into reality till last Saturday :) . So sharing the carrot cake recipe its not totally like hers cause I didn't have a lot of the ingredients so you can say its my version of Carrot Cake. The best part of this is when I shared the cake with some of my friends they liked it so much that they even parceled a few :) .

Grated Carrot 3 cups
Eggs 2 large
Brown Sugar 2 cup
Caster sugar 1 cups
Flour 2 cup
Vanilla essence 2 teaspoon
Cinnamon Powder 1 teaspoon
Salt A pinch of it
Baking Powder 1 teaspoon
Baking Soda 1/2 teaspoon
Oil 2 tablespoons
Butter 2 tablespoons

Cheese Cream 1/2 cup
Butter 2 tablespoon
Orange zest Half tablespoon
Orange Juice 2 tablespoon
Icing Sugar 2 cups

  1. Whisk together eggs , vanilla essence , brown sugar and caster sugar. Whisk till the sugar mix properly and also the mixture turns a pale and fluffy.
  2. Add the egg mixture add the flour,baking powder , baking soda , cinnamon powder and salt to the food processor and start mixing. The mixture will not be very smooth but its fine.
  3. To the food processor add the carrot , oil and butter and start mixing till it gets smooth.
  4. Coat a baking bowl with little oil and add the cake mixture to the baking bowl.
  5. Bake the cake in microwave for 12 min at 100 degree. After the time is up using the back of the spoon insert it into the cake at the center and pull up. If its clean then the cake is done else bake it for some more time and check again. 
  6. Remove it and then let it cool.
  1. Mix together butter, cheese cream , orange zest , orange juice and icing sugar till it appears to be glowing and look like cake icing (It will a little running icing , actually I like it way I didn't want it to be heavy).
  2. Pour the icing on the cake evenly with a spatula and refrigerate for half an hour as we don't want it to be very thick.
