I had a large stock of bananas and carrots with me and that was the time I was learning to bake the cakes. Before that I never knew about carrot cakes. Thanks to google, I found a recipe for banana-carrot cake. It looked very easy. So I baked it.
Grated carrots make this cake very very soft and tasty. One piece of this cake leaves you with full stomach. These days I bake a lot of carrot cakes since I keep a big stock of carrots always :). I will share some of them in coming days.
In the above picture, I have applied a bit of pink cream on the cake, it was just for fun :D.
Madhura baked this cake recently and sent me the gorgeous looking cake picture which I have pasted below. I didn’t know this cake can look so good :D. Thanks Madhura.
