Aldy at Al Dente Gourmet sends us this lovely carrot cake… I totally love the decoration of the candied carrots, what a clever idea! And her recipe sounds tasty too… Go read the whole thing, and get the Carrot Cake recipe!
I am particular about my carrot cake; I prefer the mixture for this cake simple but tasty. To me, adding too many ingredients to the mixture simply doesn’t do this dessert justice! Carrots themselves enhance the flavor, texture and even the appearance of this cake, especially when using freshly-grated carrots. In this recipe I combine two spices full of flavor: cinnamon and fresh ground nutmeg—these spices overtake any carrot flavor :) a perfect combination of aroma that make this carrot cake irresistible while baking it.
Actually I have to admit, I didn’t know I love carrot cake; until I had my first slice–that I will never forget– almost eight years ago in America– in the Italian Restaurant I was working at. It was a magical true experience to my senses! Since that day forward that carrot cake slice became my source of inspiration for this cake.
