There are umpteen numbers of cakes right from the simple ones to complicated ones.When I started baking I used to make mainly chocolate based ones and this was my first cake other than chocolate,an easy one and of course children also liked it.Thanks to Vandana as it is long time since I made this

Powdered sugar-125 gms
Eggs-3 large
Baking powder-1/2 tsp
Carrot-125gms grated
Lime rind-2tsp grated
Cashew-125gms chopped finely(optional)
Vanilla essence-1tsp

Sieve the flour and baking powder
Beat the white part of egg till stiff and fluffy
Add the powdered sugar,beat and add the yolk one at a time and beat as you add
Combine the lime rind to this
Fold in the flour and mix
Finally add the carrots and cashews and mix well
Grease the tin and pourthe batter and bake in pre-heated oven at 250 C for 20 mins or till done
