First blog post in weeks and weeks and weeks. Naturally, it was a celebration (and a new camera!) that finally prompted me to start blogging again! My parents and I have always been a fan of carrot cake - a big deal considering my parents don't even really like cake. The problem I have with most carrot cakes is there's either too much stuff in the cake or its wayyy to sweet. So instead of driving all the way to the store to buy a cake no one really wants to eat, I decided to bake one instead. Recipe is a combination of what is provided by Smitten Kitchen's maple cream cheese frosting carrot cup cakes, a can of canned pineapple and various googling of carrot cake recipes online (recipe shown below).
|Carrot grating, nut meg grating & grounding of spices.|
|Mixing in the carrots to the cake batter & making cream cheese frosting (with a generous portion of maple syrup)|
|Some guesswork in the baking time but still managed to produce a rather tasty cake :)|
|1/2 a bushel of crabs, growler of beer and some Irish car bombs.|
