Gluten free cakes are healthy version of cakes. These cakes are baked without maida or wheat . Here, I have used gluten free flours like bajra and ragi . Flax seed powder acts as a substitute for egg and carrots added for additional nutrients. I tried this cake with coconut sugar and it tasted like any other brown sugar cake . My family couldn’t make out that it was made of coconut sugar. For vegan version you may use coconut milk instead of milk . Spices like cinnamon and nutmeg gives this carrot cake a nice flavour. Do try this cake for your family and stay healthy. So lets get started with the making of gluten free cake .
