Hi Asalamualaikum to all ,I am Hiba,:) mmm to start with, I am happy to blog as a guest for Rafi’s humble blog , it is a space i truly enjoy ,I never knew how we became friends and I call her my big virtual sister:). I wanted to give something special for her blog and this is my umma’s favorite classic cake. This is a special post for me, as this is my first guest post. She is one of the most versatile blogger’s I have met in the virtual world. Her blog is one of the many blogs I keep following on daily basis. An all-rounder, working mother of two wonderful girls, a homemaker and a blogger for many years, is not an easy task, a job well maintained. I adore her spicy spirit 🙂 The blog is filled with simple and awesome recipes ,and equally good reading content. She needs no introduction to anyone, to say . One of her wonderful recipe that I enjoyed making was Zebra cake. I have posted this recipe in my blog too:).Also check out the Hyderabadi Dahi Bindi. and Mathi Mulakittathu, my favorites!
My blog coconutchutney.in has just turned one year. It is a space I enjoy posting my special recipes and my passion for cooking. I began blogging out of excitement to post all recipes online so I can maintain it anywhere I go ! As residing in Abu Dhabi , I get to cook and explore the wide range of the culinary world ,and also getting to know a whole bunch of bloggers is truly delighting . But mostly I love baking and you will find more of cakes in my humble blog . My blog will bring you more of Kannur food ,my hometown ,and my mom’s home cooked delights .
The recipe below is a wonderful one. I baked it and I had to distribute it to everyone . Yes it is a large cake. I gave to my neighborhood friends. Healthy wheat flour carrot cake . I must say and you will be surprised ,you do not need an egg beater to do the job, a normal grinder will do. But I have used my beater, here. The list might be long , but very easy cake. Do not mind the task of grating of the carrots for the cake.
Thank you Rafeeda , for giving me the opportunity to be your guest🙂
