  • 2 Flaxseed Eggs 
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 cup Grated Carrot

For the glaze:

  • ¼ cup Melted Butter 
  • 2 cups Icing Sugar
  • 2 to 4 tbsp warm milk (as required based on consistency)
  • Pinch of Salt
  • ½  tsp Almond Essence 


  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the eggs, oil, vanilla essence and sugar.
  2. Whisk them together using an electric beater for about 3 minutes on medium speed until the mixture appears light in color and fluffy in texture.

  5. Sieve these dry ingredients until they mix well together.
  6. Now add grated carrot to the flour mixture and pour milk as required while stirring them together until the mixture forms into a pouring consistency. Mix well to ensure no lumps of flour remain in this mixture.
  7. Pour the flour mixture into the egg mixture bowl and blend them together until well combined.
  8. Pour the entire batter into the greased baking pan and spread evenly before baking the cake for 35-40 minutes. Insert a skewer in the middle of the cake pan to check if the cake is baked well.
  9. Allow the cake to cool completely before you begin to glaze the cake or decorate with butter-cream frosting and toppings of your choice.
