Eggless carrot cake is the moist, soft and delicious two-layered cake covered in healthy greek yogurt frosting.
This is an easy one bowl recipe. Yes, you read right. This carrot cake for two is made in microwave under 5 minutes. Its so easy and delicious that no body can resist it. This cake is the best dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth even if you are health conscious.
This eggless carrot cake recipe is inspired by my microwave chocolate cake recipe which I would be publishing soon.
Coming to recipe, I have used the combination of whole wheat flour and self raising flour to get light airy texture. I had also tried it with only wholewheat flour, it taste as delicious as this but that’s little dense.
It can be made vegan too just by replacing milk with almond or soy milk. I have also used combination of brown sugar and stevia, it gives better flavour and controls quantity of sugar. Stevia is a plant-based, no-calorie sweetener that’s clean eating friendly, and it’s very concentrated. Stevia is totally optional.
Here comes the secret of this recipe. Cook this cake at 30 percent for longer time on low power rather than for 1 minute on high power. When cake cooks at low watt in microwave, it gives nice moist texture. It will not turn out rubbery.
For the frosting part, I have used hung greek yogurt. You may use cream cheese or mascarpone cream if you like.
