After many adventures at baking nd throwing it in the dustbin finally a recipe which is simple nd also turned out well almost delicious, but for my hurry makes curry attitude ,2 mistakes i made , one used half up of powdred oats instead of taking half cup oats nd powdring it, 2nd i used the blender too much, so the cake was a little dense, but never the less , i am waiting for hubby to finish off the remaining cake so that i cna try the carrot cakes, one request , if u can kindly write the measurements for cakes in grams or oz also. Once again many thanks for a healthy delicious cake recipe.
