Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake from Nag's blog-

(I have altered the recipe only a bit, subbing wheat flour for AP, used both nutmeg and cinnamon for flavor, and forgot the walnuts!!)
1 cup wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground nutmeg and cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups grated carrots

In a medium bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients and set it aside.

In a large bowl, break the egg, add oil, sugar, milk and combine till blended. Use a hand mixer if you like.  To this mix, add the flour mix and combine well. Now fold in the carrots and add the walnuts if using (I forgot them completely!)

Tranfer to a greased baking dish. Bake for 35 mins or until done. Allow to cool.

I baked this for Niket's birthday, and even before I could turn it out onto a serving plate, the cake was cut in all directions :( Check out the pic here!

I am sending this to Bake Fest at Vardhini's Kitchen.
