I invited my friends Janet and Ian last weekend for dinner and there's no way I let them leave without a slice of cake or two, and the cake in question is this Venetian carrot cake...
I adore carrot cake. Carrots are naturally sweet and since they contain significant amount of vitamin A, this cake is health cake, really, and is good for all of us. The topping is different to the original recipe, but this was not intentional. I thought I already bought some pine nuts, but... when I got home from the store, what I had was flaked almonds, not pine nuts!! Never mind, it's still delicious. You've got to have it with the rum flavoured mascarpone cream.... It's so, so good.
Oh, the cake is gluten-free and dairy-free if you must know.
