Carrot Cake (Steamed eggless cake) | Cakes & Desserts
Desserts are that course of a meal that is not always prepared in our households unless its a special occasion. So, on those few days when the kids do get to have desserts, they are really satifsied, no matter what the dessert is. So, why not take advantage of this and make the dessert a healthy one? Why not discard the chocolates and syrups for once and serve a healthy carrot cake to our kids this time? Not only are the kids happy, but so are you, watching your picky kids devouring the healthy dessert happily without making a fuss about eating vegetables!
