Baking a moist carrot cake is not difficult.

Follow the instructions and flaunt your baking skills by making this carrot cake from the scratch.

  1. Take 3 nine inches cake pans and put wax paper. Grease wax paper with oil evenly and sprinkle all-purpose flour. It is important to grease evenly the wax paper so that it doesn’t stick to the baked cake. Greasing helps in getting it removed hassle free without damaging the cake.  We are using 3 cake pans as we will layer the cake.
  2. Preheat oven at 180 degrees C for 10 minutes. This is very important, while you prepare the batter to bake, let the oven preheat at exactly 180 degrees C and be ready to bake your perfect moist carrot cake.
  3. Take a large bowl, enough that can hold ingredients and let you sift them without spilling them out.  In that large bowl mix all-purpose flour, baking soda, cinnamon powder and salt in quantities as mentioned above in ingredients.
  4. In another pan with enough depth that let you mix beaten eggs with other ingredients. Add eggs (beaten), sugar, oil and butter milk to the mixture and stir well. The best way to stir is to keep mixing in a medium speed in one direction. It helps in avoiding lumps if formed and intact the good flavour of the batter.
  5. Now, add the flour mixture to this pan slowly. Avoid adding the whole flour at once. Stir the whole thing slowly, again moving it in one direction.  Blend them well and avoid any lump formation.
  6. Add finely grated carrot, flaked coconut from the can, and chopped walnuts in the batter. Also add crushed and already drained pineapple in the batter.
  7. Pour batter in the prepared greased pans one at a time. The batter which is at the bottom of the bowl has not risen properly. Try to pour the bottom batter towards the side of the greased cake pans where it will be baked faster.
  8. Bake all 3 nine inches cake pans in the preheated oven for approx 30 minutes.
  9. Before removing cakes pans from the oven check them by inserting a tooth pick. If the tooth pick comes out clean with sticky cake on it, then the cake is ready. If tooth picks comes out to be sticky, then bake the cake for 5-7 minutes more in the oven.  Repeat this tooth pick test till your cake is ready, reducing re-baking time by 2-3 minutes every time.
  10. Now, once the baking is done, let the cake cool down in cake pans for 15 minutes.
