Today this Mommy is not going to be able to spend enough time with her little man Zayan this week!! And no matter how hard we try, the mom guilt steps in!!
So Mumma made him this cake, that has very little quantity of refined flour (Maida) and sugar but it also has finger millet (ragi) flour, sorghum (jowar flour) eggs, carrot and dates in it!! Here is the recipe for this easy peasy microwave cake that is ready in just 6-6.30 minutes.

2 big Carrots peeled and grated.
½ Cup Milk or more
½ Chopped dates
¼ Cup Butter
1tbsp baking powder and 1tsp baking soda
Some sliced dry fruits for garnishing
METHOD Mix in the butter, sugar and eggs, until smooth. The mixture should look creamy and light yellow in color. Add in grated carrots and milk. Mix well.
Now sieve the dry ingredients and mix them well. Add the baking powder and baking soda to it as well.
