Intro

My mother used to make a carrot cake similar to this when I was a child. She would use it as a children's birthday cake (without the ginger) and decorate them beautifully. Children just love this spiced carrot cake.!! It is also a great cake for picnics and tea parties, as a tea cake. This is a very simple recipe, with very simple ingredients.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups Plain Flour
  • 1 cup Sugar (I use raw sugar, but any sugar is fine)
  • 2 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp Ground Ginger
  • 1/2 Tbsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 - 2 cups Grated Carrot ( 1 medium-large carrot is what I used)
  • 1/2 Tbsp Vanilla Esscence
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 pots (4 tbsp) Natural Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil

Grease and flour the pan. I always do this first, as it gets the annoying stuff out of the way and leaves you with good, fun cooking time.

Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Flour, sugar, baking powder, ground ginger, and ground nutmeg (in my case vanilla essence).

Add the grated carrot to the dry mixture and mix in well. This allows the flour to stick to the carrot and soak up any unwanted moisture. .
