Finally made up my mind to bake this when my son asked me to bake a chocolate cake.I didnt want to bake a simple plain chocolate cake.I wanted a veggie or fruit as one of the main ingredinets in addition to the chocolate.So I googled up and found this recipe here.It sounded healthy and it was moist and delicious.
Thanks Rita of Mochachocolata!!
Allpurpose flour - 1 cup
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - 1tsp
Sugar -3/4 cup
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder -1/4 cup and 2 Tbsp
Cinnamon Powder - 1tsp
Salt - a pinch
Vegetable oil -1/2 cup and 1 tbsp
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
Grated Carrot - 1 1/2 cup about 3 medium
Eggs - 2
Handful of semisweet chocolate chips -didnt use because I didnt have any.
Preheat oven to 350F, lightly grease a loaf pan. Place eggs, sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl.
Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder in another bowl. Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla mixture until pale, add flour mix and beat until well mixed, add grated carrots, mix well.
If using chocolate chips fold in the batter.
Pour the batter into a loaf pan bake for about 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.Mine was done in 50 minutes.
Let cool in the oven for 10 minutes, and turn onto a wire rack to cool completely
