Atta carrot cake/Award time(again)

I usually make carrot cake at home. This time tried it with wheat flour and garam masala. Usually it is cinnamon powder that goes in it. But then for a change tried this and came out well. It is better to sieve wheat flour before mixing as that makes the cake more soft. This can be named as a "Guilt free cake" too ..

  1. Wheat flour (Atta) - 1 cup sieved
  2. Baking powder - 1tsp
  3. Vegetable oil (I used sunflower) - 3/4 cup
  4. Egg - 2
  5. Sugar - 3/4 to 1 cup (as per your taste bud) - powdered
  6. Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
  7. Carrot grated - 1 and 1/2 cup
  8. Vanilla essence - 1 tsp

  1. Sieve wheat flour and baking powder and keep aside
  2.  Mix together oil, egg and let them blend well
  3.  To this add sugar and mix well until you get a smooth batter
  4.  Add garam masala powder, vanilla essence and blend again.
  5. You don't need a cake mixer. Just a wooden spoon will do the work for the carrot cake.
  6.  Now slowly mix in the wheat flour and baking pwdr. Sometimes you'll feel the batter is thick.
  7. Add the grated carrots and combine. The batter becomes loose again and ready to go in the oven.
  8. Butter your baking dish and prepare it before pouring in the batter
Preheat your oven for 10 minutes. For baking this, my oven worked at 150 degrees for 30 minutes in middle rack.
