Cakes with veggies, fruits and nuts are not for everyone. I really like it. And so I love this carrot cake full of these things. It became one of my favourite cake recipes. It is actually more of a fruit cake than a carrot cake and it tastes even better after a couple of days.
Now that Christmas is coming closer, I am looking forward to baking with spices of all sorts – especially cinnamon, cloves and star anise.
We bought an additonal spice rack as the old one became too small. Now we have a lot of small glass jars filled with all kinds of little treasures. It is not only useful but it also looks very pretty.
