Carrot-Cinnamon cake

I hope you had a fantastic weekend.
I have been wanting to make carrot cake ever since I saw this recipe from Dana's blog. I love that the recipe calls for cinnamon and I am a lover of all things cinnamon ( cinnamon scented candles, cinnamon flavored gum, cinnamon flavored lip balm etc).
These are the ingredients I used.
3 large carrots
1/2 cup Vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups regular sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla essence
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
5 tablespoons cinnamon
2 tsp ginger
1 cup milk and 2 tsp fresh lemon juice.
Check for the baking instructions here.  The cake was a hit and everyone asked for more.

Another thing I loved about the recipe is that there is no creaming of butter and sugar  which is usually the first step in most cake recipes and which I am so poor at.
Enjoy your week and hope you get a chance to try out the recipe.
