Older children enjoy cake as an occasional treat but plain sponge cakes can be a little boring for them.
Carrots have been added as they add variety and also provide substantial amounts of vitamin A and fibre. Cinnamon, nutmeg, milk and jaggery impart delicious flavours to this cake.
This cake is really a great "tiffin box" item that your baby will enjoy during play time.

- Combine the butter, jaggery and milk in a broad non-stick pan, mix well and cook on a slow flame for 2 minutes, while stirring continuously.
