It has been very long since I posted. As most of you know, we had our little munchkin born in the month of June. I couldn’t get along with blogging. Being a first time mom , I am still in sleepless mode 🙂 In between my DD turned 4.5 months, phew did I say 4.5 months…YES she is already 4.5 months old. She was a preemie baby born 3 weeks early. She was born even before my mom could reach us. Some things were out of control, she was in NICU for sometime. We managed ourselves. First few days were totally a mess. Thankfully we got better once my mom arrived.
Fellow blogger friends, sorry I couldn’t visit your pages and leave comments. I am still not in full fledged mode to return to blogging but definitely will be coming back 🙂 So we celebrated her 3 months with this Oats carrot cake( I started writing this post when she was just 3 huh now you know!!!)…..As my mom is a complete vegetarian who doesn’t take eggs, I decided to make an eggless cake.
Oats : 2.5 cups ( finely ground)
Baking Powder : 1 teaspoon
Salt : 1/4 teaspoon
Cinnamon : 1/4 teaspoon
Nutmeg : 1/4 teaspoon
Walnuts : 1/4 cup
Sugar : 1/2 cup (I used coconut palm sugar)
Carrot : 1 cup grated(finely packed)
Milk : 1 cup
Vanilla essence : 1 teaspoon
Butter : 1/4 cup
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Combine ground oats, sugar, nutmeg powder, cinnamon powder, walnuts and give a nice aeration.
- Combine Carrot, milk, vanilla essence, butter.
- Now combine wet and dry ingredients together.
- Grease a baking tray with butter, pour the batter.
- Bake for 30 mins, until a tooth pick comes out clean.
For the glazing I didn’t get it perfect, just added butter, sugar and some orange zest. Sorry for the poor pictures, as we were in a hurry.
