Eggless Whole Wheat Carrot Cake

Eggless  Whole Wheat Carrot Cake

Carrot cake is something that I was planning to bake from very long. Today when I planned to bake some tea cake, I thought of fulfilling my bake crave for carrot cake. Today everything was favouring me to do it, I had lots of carrots in my fridge along with other ingredients. And when I told Amit ( hubby) on my wish of making a carrot cake he too was keen on looking at the results, so curiosity increased all the more.

Then another thought came to my my mind of making a whole wheat cake instead of using plain flour/ APF. As my apple cake with whole wheat flour was a super hit thought of trying similar process for carrot cake too. 

So started the cake bake preparation, and to my surprise cake came absolutely gorgeous, super moist and yummy too.

Sharing my experience of an eggless whole wheat cake with all my foodie friends. This is especially for all those mums who wants to give best snack to their kids. This cake is good source of iron, vitamin A, it's naturally sweet and with wholesome dietary fibre too. And, wheat again with whole some fibre and nutrients value adds to the yummy and healthy snacking...:) <3
