Years of practise is behind this recipe, and believe me, it turns out perfectly every time.
I vividly remember the first time I’ve ever made carrot cake at home. Carrot cake is not (or at least it wasn’t) a big thing, nor an everyday dessert here, so I wasn’t surprised when I met with skeptic eyes. But after the first bite, my family was hooked. After some time, we took a carrot cake to a birthday celebration to work, and I couldn’t stop hearing about when I’ll take more, everyone loved!
I know it’s really not on the healthy side of desserts, but it’s perfect from time to time.
