NomNomMum Turns One!

This day a year ago I wondered how the blog would pan out over time, and I am happy it’s still going strong. I hope I am able to pile on the entries with more recipes, tips and experiences as we get older, T and NomNomMum that is. So thank you all for appreciating, sharing and being a part of our journey. Also, what better way to celebrate than with some yummy carrot cake cupcakes? The baby loves them, we love them it’s a win win for all.

Method:

  • Mix the dry ingredients of set 01 and pass through a sieve. Set aside
  • Whisk the ingredients of set 02 in a separate bowl for about 30 seconds on medium speed, except the eggs. Add the eggs in one at a time with a quick whisk. Set aside
  • Combine set 01 and set 02 and whisk again for about 20 seconds
  • Now, Add the coconut and the carrots (set 03). FOLD it into the batter until well incorporated. Do not over work the batter. Keep a light hand while folding
  • Pour out the batter in cupcake moulds and top off with a sprinkle of oats OR pour into a buttered cake tin
  • Bake for about 15-20 mins on 200°C or until golden brown
  • Serve when cool

Tip:

  • Insert a fork or a toothpick into the cake to check if it’s done. The fork should come out clean
  • Carrot cake tastes best with a cream cheese frosting :)
