Carrot Walnut Cake

My Mom in law was very proud of her carrot cake recipe, which she had got from a family friend. As per her it was a fool proof recipe. Boy did I prove her wrong! Not giving up, I gave it another shot and decided to move on from carrot cake.

Kept my research on for a simple to execute recipe though. Took me sometime & trials to zero down on this recipe.

On a camping trip early this year, a friend had got store bought Carrot Walnut cake. Loved the combination of these flavours and decided to include in my recipe too. My home audience which has become food critiques thanks to lockdown rated it at 10/10
