Hi Everyone this is my second innings for carrot cake. This Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting is healthy and great to eat during winters for the extra nutrition. My first Moist Carrot Cake was a hit but the second Eggless Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting is a super duper hit. Both taste great, yummy and delicious. I would suggest try both recipes for protiens, carotene and vitamin A.The specialty of this Eggless Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting is what the name suggests. The cake is eggless and tastes awesome without eggs in it.
Eggless Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting consists of cream cheese, cashew, walnuts, Carrots, Milk. Just eat a small piece every day. Don’t overeat you might end up in adding calories. Unless you use less sugar or replace with brown sugar, replace butter with margarine Or Olive Oil. Also let me tell you this carrot cake tastes awesome with Nutmeg and Cinnamon Powder.
I specially include vegetables like carrot, beetroot in the cake to make it nutritious and rich. As we all eat cakes but it just includes refined flour, dalda and sugar. So its upto you how you can make a difference to your diet. Just be cautious what you use and how its going to affect your body. You could always use whole wheat flour instead of Cake Flour.
These are Minute things but makes a lot of difference in your diet and health. Also fruits , vegetables in cakes is a great way to introduce in the diet to toddlers and children. Also great for people like my mother who do not like much veggies like carrot or beetroot.
