Home style carrot cake made with 50% whole wheat and 50% white flour. Ever since I started baking, preparing this cake at home for kids has become a kind of tradition. Whenever I make this cake the next day breakfast boxes for kids and tea time snacks both are sorted and that's why I'm always happy to bake this
I'm still trying to make this with complete whole wheat, but couldn't get the perfect kids approved texture, so I sticking to both type of flours.
