Hello hello hello my lovely reader and visitors, how is your weekend so far? mine is busy with cake project! Ha Ha

I got too much carrot on my fridge- not because its the year of rabbit tho wkwkwkwk, I just stocked too much of it.
I didn't know what else I should do with them so I decided to make a cake with it.

I was a bit nervous because am not gud in baking  BUT  this morning, I manage to make a Carrot Cake! Ta daaaaaaaa!
See, I did it!!! :)
Oh I even like the color, its looks pretty and that's fresh from the oven when I snapped the pic LOL
I am eating a slice of my carrot cake while am typing this mm yum yum....you want one? then you should make one hihihi

I am not a cake expert and its my first time making it Ha ha so its A la Me :P  and fear not as I love love love to share the recipe with you all here. Pssst, no need to call 911:)
Here's the ingredients I use:

250 grams flour
200 grams margarine
200 grams sugar
220 grams grated raw carrot
3  eggs
2 table spoon of lemon juice

Here's the method I did:

1. Preheat your oven to 170C. Grease a 25 cm round cake pan lightly with margarine

2. Put Flour in separate place and set a side

3. Place margarine in large bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat it with sugar until well combined and smooth.

4. Pour the mixture margarine into flour and continue beat with the mixer till combined. 
    Using wooded spoon, stir in grated carrot and add the lemon juice.

5. Pout the mixture into the pan and bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Cool in pan. Turn onto plate. Serve.

I don't want to use too much sugar so my Carrot cake isn't too sweet  but you can add some honey and spread it over the cake if you like 

So there you have it: the carrot cake A la Dita recipe! Do try it at home :)

Enjoy your weekend and stay tune for more post updatse from me at Mignonesia.
