When I woke up this morning, I had this urge to bake and for something sweet, but not too sweet and not chocolate; and I decided to make carrot cake.
This carrot cake is dense, but not at all heavy or dry. In fact so moist... so delicious. Oh, have I mentioned that there's just over a block of butter in this cake? If not, let me tell you there's just over a block of butter in this cake.
And the icing is to die for. If you love the sour freshness of limes, this is for you.
I took the cake to work and shared it with my colleagues. After work, I spent my time at the gym.
I want to say that this carrot recipe recipe has been passed down in my family for many generations and we took an oath at birth to guard this recipe from the outside world... NOT! If you have Jamie Oliver's Cook with Jamie cook book, simply go to page 387.
