  • 2 cups of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1+1/2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1+1/2 cups of finely chopped walnut
  • 2 cups of shredded carrot
  • 1 tbsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
Preheat the oven to 350F.
In a large mixing bowl, take the eggs and sugar and mix it for 5 minutes with a mixer. Add milk and vegetable oil gradually and whisk. Add flour and cinnamon to this mixture and mix them for another 5 minutes. Add carrot and walnut to the bowl and stir them with a spoon until they are well combined. Pour this mixture to a 10" non-stick round cake pan and bake it for 45 minutes. Check the cake by inserting a toothpick into the center. The toothpick will come out clean when the cake is done. Remove the pan from oven and allow the cake cool completely.

    Well, I made this healthy cake by replacing all the sugar quantity with a mixture of honey+grape pekmez, and the walnuts with 1 cup of oat flakes and 1/2 cup of finely chopped almonds. I also added 2 full spoonfuls of black raisins. Yes, it came out so soft-was not left intact on the cake plate for many days!!!!
    Thanx Iffet!
