Hema's recipe: Eggless Carrot Cake and frosting -- 5Oth POST
I wanted to try out frosting the cake. So when I was searching the net, I came across this recipe in showmethecurry.
This carrot cake is very easy and simple and no one would tell that it is eggless.
So I tried out this cake along with frosting on my husband's birthday. He was so surprised to see the cake and we enjoyed the cake so much that not even a piece was left by that evening.
And one of my neighbour Mrs.Helen, helped me out in decorating the cake. Thank you helen.
This happens to be my 50th post. Celebrating it with a sweet cake!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1) All purpose flour - 2 cups
2) Baking soda - 1 tbsp
3) Baking powder - 1 tbsp
4) Cinnamon powder - 1 tbsp(optional)

1) Whipped frosting cream - 12 0z(I used betty crocker frosting cream)
1)Mix 2 tbsp flax seeds in 6 tbsp of water and allow it to sit for 10 mins.
This flax seeds is an egg substitute. After 10 mins this becomes like a gluey like thing.
2)Take a bowl and mix bowl 1 ingredients.
3)In the same way, take another large bowl and mix bowl 2 ingredients. Mix well until the sugar dissolves.
4)Add the flax seeds mixture to it and mix well.
5)Now add the bowl 1 ingredients to the bowl 2 and mix well to form a smooth batter.
6)Add in grated carrots, chopped walnuts and melted butter and mix them well.
7)Preheat the oven to 350 F.
8)Grease the baking tray and pour in the batter and bake for about 30 mins.
9)After 30 mins, insert a knife/fork to the cake and it should come out clean. This means the cake is ready.
10)Remove them and let them cool completely.
11)Run a knife around the edges of the cake to loosen and place a flat plate over the tray and turn it over to transfer the cake on to the plate.
12)If you are not doing frosting, you can have the cake immediately.
13)But if you are going to do frosting, allow them to cool completely.
1)Take the whipped frosting cream and fill them in a ziplock cover.
2)Make a small hole at one end down and press them on the cake.
3)Using a butter spreader, spread them over the cake and see that the sides of the cake are also covered.
4)Now decorate the cake as you desire and enjoy it as we did.
