Cooking and blogging has become an integral part of my life today. After blogging for 365 days continuously, I thought I will be taking a break but I’m simply hooked onto it. I will tell you the secret that I can’t stay away from blogging as I love talking to you all through my blog sharing my daily joy and sorrows. I also received an email this morning from India books of Records that they have featured my record in their gallery. Click here to check my record. I have to thank God for showing me the way to share my love for food. I also thank each one of you for the continuous love and support.
I had been busy since morning with household activities and when my little boy asked for cake, I could not stop myself from again getting into the kitchen and churning something to treat him. He’s a sweet boy who has filled my life with so much joy and happiness. I was not in a mood to bake a complete cake today and decided to make a mug cake for a quick treat. As always, he thanked me with his hugs and kisses and i could not have asked for more..
This quick treat is filled with goodness of fresh carrots and walnuts and you can always enjoy it over a cup of tea/coffee..

Whole wheat Flour – 4 tbsp
Powdered Sugar – 3 tbsp
Finely shredded carrot – 2 tbsp
