Applesauce Carrot Cake- Celebrating the 100K milestone

I used to dream about it. Yes!! finally I touched the 100,000 page views and 25,000 viewers. For this achievement my buddy husband gifted me the Kitchen-aid stand mixer.  To celebrate , I made this Applesauce Carrot cake.


This egg less cake is excellent with the cream cheese frosting or by itself. I adapted this recipe from “Bakin’ without Eggs” by RoseMarie Emro’s. I made small changes, it turned out very well. Applesauce adds moisture to this carrot cake. Good baking for people with allergies

Ingredients:
Light Brown sugar     -                                ¼ cup+ 1 tbsp.
 Lightly sweetened Apple sauce                  , 1 ¼ cups
Vegetable Oil                                              ¼ cup

Method:
  •  Preheat 350 F. Butter a 9 inch pan. Keep aside.
  • Take a large pan; add all above ingredients except carrot.

  • Now with wooden spoon, fold in carrots until well combined.
  • Pour the mixture into a greased pan and spread the batter evenly.
  • Bake 30 to 40 minutes.
  • The cake is ready, when it leaves the sides of the tin and is springly to touch.
  • When ready, remove from the oven and leave it for cool. Invert the tin over a rack and tap sharply to remove.
  • Cool before frosting.


To prepare Frosting: 
  • In a small bowl with a handheld electric mixer set on medium speed, beat cream cheese with icing sugar until smooth , approximately 1 minute.
  • Now add at once lemon rind, orange concentrate and vanilla essence.
