MICROWAVE GINGER CARROT CAKE Non-Vegetarian-Dish

Ginger carrot cake is a sweet spice cake with grated carrot and ginger mixed into the batter. The carrot softens in the cooking process, and the cake usually has a soft, dense texture. The carrots themselves enhance the flavor, texture and appearance of the cake. The combination of ginger and carrot provides a light, moist and flavorful cake.
