Golden Wheat Carrot Ring !! -A healthy Carrot Cake..

Of all the baking books I have read so far ,The Cake Bible written by Rose Levy Beranbaum is one exceptional job ! With the comprehensive description of baking science,this book is capable of creating kind of haunting passion to those who are interested in baking..

Today's recipe obviously is from The Cake Bible- the super healthy carrot ring ! While describing about this,Ms.Beranbaum passionately writes on how she feel pure and healthy having this cake.I too agree with her.With the perfect blend of carrot,honey,wheat flour and cinnamon,no wonder if it's turning as one of your tea time obsession..Do try this once to enjoy the wonder !


1 cup  whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon powder
2 large eggs
145 gm unsalted,melted butter
3/4 liquid cup of honey (if it's tight,1/4 cup will do)
2 cups grated carrot
5 tbsp lime juice
(all ingredients should be in room temperature)


Preheat the oven to 180 degree.Prepare a 6 cup ring mould with butter.It's better not to sprinkle flour.This will give the cake a soft texture.
In a small mixing bowl,mix together grated carrot and lime juice.In a large mixing bowl bring together all dry ingredients and mix well till perfectly blended.To this add eggs,butter,honey and carrot mixture.Mix with a wooden spatula or a hand mixer till the dry ingredients are blend well and moistened enough to form a nice cake mixture.Pour the mixture to the prepared mould and bake in 180 degree for 23-26 minutes or a tester come out clean from the centre of the cake.Keep it in the cake tin for 10 minutes on a rack and then un-mould to a buttered rack.

Cool completely and enjoy.You may decorate with icing sugar and cinnamon powder.But this is a delight in itself.
