Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. Strongly brewed tea - 1/4 cup (See Tips below)
  2. carrots - 2 big
  3. dates - 1 cup pitted and chopped
  4. cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
  5. oil - 1 1/2 cups
  6. all purpose flour - 2 1/2 cups
  7. Baking powder - 1 1/4 tsp
  8. baking soda - 1 tsp
  9. eggs - 4 room temperature
  10. Granulated sugar - 1 1/2 cups
  11. Packed dark brown sugar - 1/2 cup
  12. A pinch of salt
  13. For the pistachio cream cheese frosting:
  14. Hung curd - 1 cup
  15. Whipped cream - 1 cup (Beaten whipped cream)
  16. Icing sugar- 3 tbsp
  17. pistachio essence - 1 tsp
  18. pistachios crushed - 1/4 cup to garnish


  1. Dry whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Wipe dry the processor bowl, add sugar, brown sugar, tea and eggs. Turn on the processor and blend everything for 30 seconds.
  3. With the processor on, add oil in a steady stream. Run the processor till the mixture is emulsified. This takes about 20 - 30 seconds. (The result is a satiny smooth mixture).
  4. Add the chopped dates to the flour and mix well. This ensures that dates do not sink to the bottom while baking.
  5. Pour the egg - sugar mix over Carrot and fold using a silicone spatula.
  6. Fold in the flour till no speck of flour is visible. Pour into a greased pan. Place the pan in the middle rack of a preheated oven.
  7. Bake for about 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. (I divided the batter into two and baked separately to get two layers, do not slice the cake into 2 to get 2 layers, as the cake is soft it can break)
  8. Cool the cake completely. Meanwhile prepare Pistachio cream cheese frosting. In a bowl, beat hung curd and icing sugar well.
  9. Add pistachio essence, beat. Using silicone spatula, fold in the whipped cream. Apply half of the frosting over one layer of cake. Place the second layer of cake on top.
  10. Again spread remaining half of the frosting over the cake. Garnish with chopped Pistachios. Serve and enjoy.
