Carrot And Walnut Cake

panlasangpinoy's picture
Carrot Cake is a type of cake that uses grated carrots as the primary ingredient. Like all cakes, this cake requires batter which is made up of flour, sugar, eggs, baking soda, and baking powder. This is a good moist cake to feast-on since the hefty amount of carrots softens when baked thus providing additional moisture and flavor.
