Carrot cake

With a surplus of carrots in the house - I had a bag of shop-bought ones that needed using up and we are now getting our own from the garden (post to come), plus an empty cake tin, I decided to make a carrot cake today.

It was easy to prepare using this recipe and the verdict was "mmmm, very nice indeed".

Yes it tasted pretty good I have to say. Oddly I've never made carrot cake before! The recipe was really easy because you use oil not butter so no creaming required.

I love carrot cake and to think it actually has some nutrition in it! You might enjoy reading a page that I have created that is dedicated to The Best-Ever Carrot Cake Recipe.

Hi Brenda, thanks for your comment and like to The Best-Ever Carrot Cake Recipe. The maple icing sounds great, I love maple syrup and have a Canadian friend who brings me a bottle when she visits! (It's very expensive to buy real maple syrup here)
