Carrot Cake

What’s Orange And Sounds Like A Parrot?

That’s right, Carrot!

Now who doesn’t like Carrot Cake? Raise your hands! That’s what I thought, no hands 😀

In my opinion, ain’t no Fall without a Carrot Cake! I open season every year with cake and Chili,sort of tradition in my house 🙂

I love all the aromas coming out of the oven; cinnamon, orange, batter etc. Only thing that lacks is Apple Cider, about that in some later posts.

Shall we begin making a Cake?

Oh, one more thing, I don’t like any frosting on my cake so if you prefer some it is up to you.

  3. The recipe I used was almost the same. except for brown sugar and baking powder. And my pie looked like yours, although I expected it to be more puffy. It was my first try, and I’m glad I’m not hopeless :))
