Eggless Carrot Cake

eggless carrot cake This is a delicious one layered or you can call it a sheet Carrot Cake. Since almost everyone loves carrot cake I’ve decided to make it and make it light.

eggless carrot cake 2 I’m a big fan of carrot cake, and although I’m not a big fan of cake frosting, I couldn’t exclude the cream cheese frosting here. The cake and the frosting go together like best friends.

eggless carrot cake 3 There is only one layer of cake here, and that’s for a good reason too. If you are carrot cake addict like me, and know that one slice is not enough, believe me I did you and myself a favor.

eggless carrot cake 6 I made it eggless so everyone get to enjoy it, and like my other eggless cakes, you can never miss the eggs. The cake is moist and full of flavor. If you want to serve it in a party, then all you have to do is double the cake batter, but not the frosting.

4 tablespoons yogurt                                              

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

Frosting:

1/4 cup butter                                                           

1/4 cup low fat cream cheese                                          

2 tablespoons powder sugar                              


Making the cake:

– Preheat oven to 350F/180C.

– In a bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, spices, and the corn flour.

– Add the carrot to the previous mixture and keep aside.

– In a different bowl, beat the yogurt, sugar, vanilla, oil, and milk. When the sugar is dissolved add the flour mixture to it and mix to combine. Do not over mix.

– Pour the batter in a greased and floured 8×8 baking pan (I’ve used aluminum foil.) Bake for 35 – 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

Making the frosting:

– In a bowl, beat the butter until lighter in color, may take two to three minutes.

– Add the cream cheese and beat to combine, add the sugar, and mix well.

– Spread on cooled cake.
