Carrot Cake... :)

Celebrating V's B'day!...Made this since its his favorite cake! :)
You need:
1 cup grated carrot - tightly packed(use red carrots if in season)
1 egg
1 cup self raising flour**
1 cup sugar - powdered
1 tsp condensed milk (optional)
1/2 tsp finely powdered cinnamon
3/4 cup oil
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 drops of vanilla essence (optional - not really required since cinnamon is added)
**If u are using all purpose flour, use 1 tsp baking powder & 1/2 tsp baking soda. The rest of the ingredients remain the same.
How to:
Sieve together the flour, baking soda & baking powder and keep aside. Meanwhile pre-heat the oven for 10min at 150 deg C.
Beat the egg in a plastic/glass bowl till frothy. Add the cinnamon powder, sugar, condensed milk & beat well till light & frothy. Add the sieved dry ingredients, stirring slowly. You could alternate with the oil & dry ingredients for easy mixing. Once this is mixed well, add in the grated carrot & mix.
Pour this into a well buttered & dusted(with flour) tin and bake at 160 deg C for 30-45min or till an inserted skewer comes out clean. Tastes yummm... n tastes better the next day! :)
