If you missed it, last week was my first edition of my Saturday Snippets. You can find it here….https://sassyfitnesschick.com/2018/12/08/saturday-snippets/
I’ve had the idea for awhile to just toss out something short and sweet ’cause on the weekends yours truly is busy and I know you are too.
These posts will contain anything from a current recipe I’ve found and love, an exercise idea, thought, inspirational quote… well… you’ll just have to check in week to week to see what it is.
Today I want to offer up a sweet treat recipe. Birthday’s are still a big deal in our home regardless of how old you get.
Every year is worthy of a celebration.
My amazing hubby just celebrated another trip around the sun so when I asked what kind of delicious cake he wanted me to whip up for him I got the not so unexpected response of…
Now don’t start gagging if the idea of veggies in a dessert seems every kind of wrong. Carrots make a wicked, moist and tender cake… and I promise you have no idea they are there.
Anyway, I’ve made these before but went searching for something “new” and found a recipe to try.
Oh my goodness. It was worth the little extra effort it took to make it ( you make a buttermilk glaze to pour on warm cake.. then frost when cooled) the frosting is …well.. can I find words??
Cream cheese and real butter with a hint of vanilla…
It made a marvelous 3 layer cake that even my carrot cake hating kids were drooling over… they are now singing a different story 😉 It really was the most amazing delicious cake.
And here’s the recipe to try out. Be sure and check out my board “homemade cakes” on Pinterest!
Are you a carrot cake lover or hater? If you don’t like it, why?
