super-delicious wholewheat carrot cake

theres bundles of carrots that has been sitting idle for almost 2weeks
which i only remember when i see this post from bakeforhappykids
i have that same book.. and had bookmarked this recipe for quite some time
but i was too tired to do it last nite.
today i got extra energy (from eating lotsof durian i suppose!)
i baked this carrot cake for tomorrow's meeting
which has been postponed again and again..
due to so many unforeseen circumstances..
i suppose we might just as well cancel the whole agenda!

i wonder what makes this cake "super-delicious"
isit because it uses butter instead of oil??

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar <-- i use 3/4cups
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup dark rasins
  • 2 cup peeled and grated carrots (about 4 carrots)

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Coat an 8 inch square baking pan with cooking spray and dust with flour, knocking out any extra.  
  2. Whisk together the butter and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl. Whisk in the eggs and then the milk. Stir in both flours, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt until combined. Stir in the walnuts, raisins and carrots.
  3. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Bake the cake until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 min. Let the cake cool in the pan for about 15 min, invert it onto a wire rack, and then turn it right side up on a rack to cool completely. Cut into 9 squares and serve.
  4. Store uneaten squares in a cake keeper or wrap in plastic and store at room temperature for up to 3 days.
its actually done by my 8yo son. senang bangat! no mixer neede. only a bowl and a spatula.
hmm.. on 2nd thought.. resepi carrot cake yg lain pun senang jugak. cuma leceh nk grate carrot tu ja.. i did the grating & the rest, is done by luqman. happy betui anak teruna tu dapat tolong ummi buat kek. hehe..

suka tgk gambar ni.. luqman lompat tak gerak kedepan pun.. dok lompat setempat sbb lumpur melekat! hehe..

hohoho.. this is really super delicious carrot cake!
and love by many (konon! padahal yg makan geng meeting ja :p)
but seriously, this is the best carrot cake i ever had - so far
a definite keeper!
