(Carrot) Cake Time!

It's not very pretty and doesn't have a decorative carrot or bunny on top, but it's John's favorite, so after months of promising I'd make one, I finally came through on my promise last night.  Although I've liked carrot cake for as long as I remember, I didn't really get into it until I came to the UK, as it seems to be offered at every good tea house.  I used this Mary Berry recipe (except I made it into a sandwich cake with a thin layer of frosting in the middle) and though I was skeptical about the addition of bananas, it worked well, keeping the cake moist and sweet.  I did add cinnamon and nutmeg, however, as I don't understand how you can make carrot cake without those two vital ingredients!  Next time, I'll add orange and lemon zest too for a bit of zing ...


  1. this looked great, what you may not have heard is that I was RENOWNED at work for my carrot cake, as well as other less flattering things for sure, and next time, I will show you my recipe, surpassed by yours on THIS occasion perhaps!!

  2. alimum, i BOW DOWN to your cake prowess and would never be foolish enough to present or boast about my humble creation in your cake-queenly presence!!!
