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.

Hi mam, isn''t it harmful to heat honey? It is always said not to heat honey as it turns poisonous?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Poonam, Thanks for bringing this to our notice. We have retried the recipe and modified it using only jaggery along with the addition of milk to adjust the consistency.

Can I use sugar instead of honey and if so how much sugar?
| Hide Replies
Tarla Dalal    Honey is a healthier option than sugar, so we have used honey in this cake. We suggest you use the same and avoid the use of sugar.
