In another bowl, whisk together sugar, oil, cranberry paste, grated carrot, zucchini and vanilla essence. Fold the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, until flour absorbs everything. Now add walnuts to the batter and mix. (Tip: to ensure the nuts don’t settle at the bottom of the cake, toss the nuts in one tsp flour and then add it to the batter)

Divide the batter into equal portions. One portion in mini cup cake tray and the other portion in cake pan.
