I was always a bit skeptical when I was seeing carrot cake in a menu (or in Starbucks). Should I try it? Should I not? And most of the times I was not. And then I did. And boy, was THAT a revelation! I loved it! The combination of carrots and spices, the cream cheese frosting, the moistness… Everything just worked!
So, when I was planning the baking menu for the weekend I decided to make a carrot cake for the first time. And it turned out exactly as I was hoping it will: soft, moist and delicious!
The carrot cake is a rather simple dessert to make and if you want to impress even more you can bake 2 layers and include frosting in between them.
