Notes

 
Some points which will help the cake come out soft.
  1. As we are using the whole wheat flour try to sieve it for three to four time. Sifting more helps to improve the aeration in cakes and the dry ingredients are also mixed uniform. This will result in a soft and spongy cake.
  2. The carrot cake when removed from the oven will be hard. But as it cools down the cake will become soft. So let the cake cool.
