Its really hard to get my fussy little one to eat some good nutritious food.So I end up experimenting new ways to do that. This cake is very similar in taste to Gajar Halwa (which is nutritious, but my little one refuses to eat). So, I tried to make it in a different form this time & came up with this cake recipe which the kids really enjoyed.
2-3 carrots (peeled & grated)
1 1/2 cups of maida /all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup butter
cashews & raisins - as required, fried in ghee
Beat together softened butter & condensed milk till smooth & creamy.
Slowly add the flour, fold in & then beat well for a min till well imcorporated.
Then fold in the grated carrots, fried cashews & raisins.
Pour the batter into a baking pan that has been greased & dusted with flour.
Bake in 350F preheated oven for 25-30 mins.
Once cooled, de-mould the cake & drizzle with some condensed milk.
