Carrot Cake was in my Baking list for a very long time. When Kalyani announced this Month's Magic Mingle Ingredients Carrot n Raisins, i decided to bake this long-waited Cake/Cup-Cake. Since Kuttu started his full-day schooling, i have got so many friends in my apartment, we get to meet downstairs to collect our kids from the school bus and do a lot of Chit-Chat. Last week, One of them gave me a packet of Nethrangkai/Banana Chips, It was so fresh, me and kuttu finished right away, without keeping any for my hubby. I wanted to return the favor to my neighbor, so i baked about 10 Muffins in a Alu-Foil holders. Kept 2 muffins for us and packed 2 each for my friends. First i thought, kuttu will not like these muffins, since it has raisins peeping from all its side. But to my surprise, he came for a second helping and once again Daddy dear was left with Clean n Clear Muffin Pan!!!!
