Christmas Holidays started! My daughter wants to bake a cake. This time, her choice is 2 layered Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. This sounds bit higher in calories, but for kids, especially during holidays, baking and decorating the cakes are fun. This whole week, I have planned for many baking dishes like cookies, homemade chocolates etc. Carrot cake are always so yummy with a rich flavour of cinnamon and nuts. This Eggless Carrot Cake is very simple to make at home. All we need is fresh red carrots that actually adds a nice appealing color and also enrich the flavour. Freshly grated carrots added to cake batter along with cinnamon and nuts is all time favourite for many of us. We can also make plain carrot cake without frosting and that will also be very much tastier. Lets see how to make this Eggless Carrot Cake with Cheese Cream Frosting Recipe.
