While shopping for bananas and apples, I came across some lovely packed carrots and just couldn’t resist the urge to buy.
They were about 30 medium sized carrots in the pack, which was more than what I needed for the weekends’ fried rice and coconut curry sauce, so I decided to make this tasty carrot cake.
I’m not one to brag about my baking, but this carrot cake was so delicious, that my neighbor paid me to bake two large ones for her daughter’s engagement party in Valencia(about 8 hours drive from us, t&f).
Unlike this one below, the cakes were frosted and had to be transported by road; I only hope the cakes made it safe and also hope you try out the recipe below☺.

If you don’t have an oven, remember that you can also bake this cake on a stove top using the method described HERE.
