Carrot Cake

"But we don't like carrot cake", I told him, my voice slightly laced with a little disappointment.

It was night, not at all late by our standards - barely quarter past nine - but in the small town that we were spending a few days holidaying, it might as well have been midnight. Shops and restaurants were shut; even this cafe had its shutters halfway down. We were craving something sweet and while the dessert list boasted things such as Death By Chocolate, New York Cheesecake and Tiramisu, all that was left in the cafe when we walked in was a slice of carrot cake.

"Try mine, you will change your mind about carrot cake", he said confidently.
It was love at first bite and early next morning, we were back at the cafe, ready for more carrot cake. In fact, for the rest of our stay, we religiously dropped in at the cafe each morning for some carrot cake.

Before we left, I casually requested him for his carrot cake recipe, expecting a 'no' for an answer. I was aghast when he produced a print-out of the recipe.

Check it out forthis recipe is, without any exaggeration, the best carrot cake ever. Seriously. The best carrot cake ever!

Edited to add... My apologies to anyone who lands on this page and doesn't find a recipe. Please email me for the recipe.

  9. Hi,

    Recently cam across your blog and landed directly on the carrot cake recipe. Like you I was not a fan a this cake, nor was my husband. But reading through your blog, I was intrigued and really wanted to try it. My husband was not very enthusiastic, but I thought I ll give it a shot anyway.. your pictures were really irresistible. Needless to say, we all loved it a lot. One of the best cakes I ve tried at home. Its as good as it looks. Thanks for sharing...:)...
