Happy Easter! Seemed appropriate to showcase Carrot Cake for that Easter Bunny!
Many years ago I made this extremely time consuming carrot cake and I wasn’t too impressed. Decided it’d be a long time before I’d make that again.
I saw a recipe in the Bunco Cookbook (that I had mentioned in one of my earlier blogs) that said this carrot cake was the best and easiest. I read it and it sounded simple enough. I do believe the person who contributed that recipe is right. It was simple and it was good. I’m not sure if it’s the best, but I’d never turn down a piece. However, the icing makes enough for two cakes in my opinion.
I encourage you to purchase the cookbook as the proceeds go to a good cause (see Hot Fudge Cake for details).
Now you can make this cake in a 9x12 pan or in two 9 inch round cake pans. And as you can see what I did was make two cakes instead of layering it.
I took one to an event and left the other one at home for hubby. How about those cute candied carrots on top? I picked those up at a local candy/baking store—Sallies.
Did I mention hubby has a sweet tooth and somehow manages to stay slim?
