Whole Wheat Carrot Cake

This carrot cake recipe is in continuation with carrot muffin (Recipe HERE)  recipe I have posted earlier. The uniqueness of this recipe is that it is spicy as well, as we are adding cinnamon and nutmeg powders. Kids and adults both will love this blend. This carrot cake is also healthy as it is prepared with wheat flour and carrot.
