Carrot cake preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C.
  2. Oil and line the base and sides of an 8 inch square cake tin with baking parchment.
  3. In a large bowl blend together the flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt and keep it aside.
  4. In another large bowl, beat together eggs, vegetable oil, white sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Blend it in a mixer for 2 minutes.
  5. Mix #3 and #4 slowly.
  6. Add carrots and grated coconut to the mix.
  7. Bake the mix in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  8. Allow it to cool in pan for 10 – 15 minutes.

To Make Topping / Frosting:

  1. In a bowl mix the butter, soft cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar and the lemon extract. Beat it until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Frost the cooled cake.

You can keep it in the refrigerator in an airtight  vessel. Take it out 1 hour before serving. You can also warm it in a microwave.

    Hi..It would be easier, if you upload pics regarding process like other sites
    or sharmispassions.com
    They give pictorial representation and is much easier to follow.

      @Sreedevi : Thanks for the suggestions. But lack of time is the reason why we cant provide such detailed recipes. Instead of providing step wise photos we are explaining them in detail. All our authors are sharing the recipes for CheenaChatti in their free time. Will try to incorporate your suggestions in the future.
