Carrot cake

Posted on July 31, 2009. Filed under: Cakes, Foods on the go | Tags: , , |

Older children enjoy cake as an occasional treat but plain sponge cakes can be a little boring for them. Carrots have been added as they add variety and also provide substantial amounts of vitamin A and fibre. Cinnamon, nutmeg, honey and jaggery impart delicious flavours to this cake.
This cake is really a great “tiffin box” item that your baby will enjoy during play time.
