  • Carrot cake


    Prepping the walnuts

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Put the walnuts in a Ziploc bag and break them with a rolling pin
  3. Pour the walnut on a baking pan and bake them for 10 minutes at 350°F
  4. Making the cake batter

  5. To a big bowl, add all purpose flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, coconut, powdered cinnamon, powdered cloves, grated nutmeg and mix well
  6. Add chopped carrots, raisins, ~half of the roasted walnuts and mix well
  7. In another big bowl, add cane sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and whisk thoroughly for approximately 30 seconds
  8. Add cooking oil and whisk for another 30 seconds
  9. Add vanilla extract and plain unsweetened yogurt and whisk for another 30 seconds
  10. Add the flour mixture little by little and fold it into the wet ingredients
  11. Baking the cake

  12. I have used an 8 inch square baking pan
  13. Grease the sides of the pan with cooking oil and place a parchment paper inside
  14. Pour the batter in the pan and level it using a spatula
  15. Swirl around a chopstick gently to get rid of air bubbles
  16. Bake the cake at 350°F for 40 to 45 minutes till a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean
  17. Frosting the cake

  18. Cool down the cake completely before de-molding it
  19. Level the surface of the cake with the serrated knife
  20. Decorate the cake with frosting and the leftover walnut pieces (Refer to the recipe video!)


  • You can either Grate/shred the carrots or chop it in a food processor by pulsing it 10-15 times just like I did!
  • Mixing the carrots raisins and walnuts with the flour prevents them from clumping up in the batter
