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

Step 1




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.

Step 2




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

Step 3




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. .
