I bought a 12 friand moulds from Melbourne ( there was 30% discount otherwise i will not buy due to high conversion ^_^) and have been searching for a recipe to try out this new mould. I saw this simple carrot cake in Tanja's blog and i immediately tried out using this new mould.
Just few ingredients and don't need a mixer to do the job, the outcome was quite impressed..similar like muffin texture, carrot taste was not strong..but beautiful golden orange colour..
I like this new mould because i can bake mini and cute cake, each of my family just grap one and enjoy!
First I use a food processor to process carrot till coarsely then only transfer to blender to blend it till finely..
I reduced the sugar from 300g to 200g but still taste a bit sweet...that's why i omitted to dust icing sugar on top of the cake..
