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 Mansi, The recipe does not make use of honey at all. If your kids do not like the flavour of cinnamon, you can skip adding it.

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

   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.
