Carrot Ginger Mini Bundt Cake

I always feel that after a vacation, I will be reluctant to enter the kitchen but it somehow turns out to be just the opposite. I only get more excited! It’s been a couple of days since we came back from our dream-came-true trip and I have loads to share with you. Hopefully, I will soon be done editing the gazillion photos that we captured. Yes, gazillion! What can I say, we visited Paris and Rome, and it was our first time to these beautiful places. We just couldn’t get enough of its beauty. I will share the travel post soon, I promise.

 

Today, let’s enjoy the Carrot Ginger Mini Bundt cake.

 

 

It’s been pouring all-day long and the weatherman said that it would remain the same for the next few days. For some weird reason, I am actually enjoying the rain and the cozy feeling that it’s bringing along with it. I am also enjoying the smell of the cake and the simple flavors, which go so well with a cup of hot tea. Perfect for the season, I say.

 

 

 

I personally feel that the combination of ginger and carrot always works! Be it in a savory soup or a sweet cake. I also added some lemon to it for a refreshing flavor. It’s one of those easy, effortless baking recipes that can turn any gloomy day into a pretty happy one!

Reem says:

Gorgeous cake!!
I just left a comment, no worries I can request u million time for quick post and pics from ur trip… Waiting….

Very different Bundt cake – one – they are mini; two – they don’t have the drippy sauce all over it. One cake per portion, what do you think?

Kankana says:

I am not much of a dripping sauce fan or frosting on the cake fan 🙂 I like it plain! And yep one cake per portion 😉

absolutely love the cake!

Aunt Clara says:

Lovely and cute. Can I come over for tea?

And honey, anything you add ginger to gets better. It’s a rule of nature. 🙂

Adorable little bundt cakes. So happy that you had such a dreamy trip. I can never get enough of looking at people’s experiences in both London or Paris. Can’t wait to see your photos.

So good to know you had such a lovely trip, K! I love mini bundt cakes and this one looks amazing! Your pictures are just stunning and the flavors are perfect. All I want to do is tuck in with a slice of your cake ( okay, maybe two) and a cup of coffee. Thanks for linking up to BundtaMonth. 🙂

Totally excited to read your upcoming travel post! In the meantime, maybe I’ll settle for some cake 🙂 And because this has carrot in it, it’s almost like health food and not dessert at all, right?

How adorable. Great flavor combination and the texture looks rich. Perfect for winter Miss Kankana!

These tiny bakes are adorable..good to see you back. Love the combo of carrots and ginger…

nipponnin says:

How lucky you! You must had a great time over there. Can’t wait to see your photos. The cake is sooo cute but where can I find the mold? This could be a great home-made gift.

Yelena says:

I love rainy and cozy days-) I don’t feel guilty if I watch an extra TV or bake something extra nutty -)) Your dessert looks so good, I just love the combination of these flavors. Winter is the season when baking is part of it, we should enjoy every moment of it.

Karen says:

Your kitchen must have smelled wonderful while your little cakes were baking. They sound terrific.

Soma says:

I am going to your trip post now. Carrot and ginger is my best and only way to have a carrot cake. really beautiful.

Wizzy says:

Carrot & ginger are awesome together!

Absolutely perfect to enjoy a rainy day indoor. I like how cute the cake looks in the mini bundt pan too!
