Carrot Cake : A Love Story : What Cake and Carrots can do for Cultural Differences

VideoChloë Rain

The other day in another town we were visiting, in a very nice restaurant... I ordered "Carrot Cake"...

Peter and I in the kitchen, I'm showing the kitchen staff my recipe for real carrot cake with the extras like raisins and chopped walnuts, and cream cheese frosting. I really do love baking, especially with an entire staff that chops and measuress things for you. Smile.

What they were serving as carrot cake, was NOT even close to carrot cake... it looked like maybe they'd used the water that carrots soaked in to make bread batter. :)  And soooooo we decided to bake a REAL Carrot Cake at Alturas Kitchen, where I shared my classic recipe with cream cheese frosting and had lots of help in the kitchen from Edward and Ruth.

Plus it turns out that Peter knows how to ice a cake like a professional. 

The outcome : a homely looking, but delicious gluten free version, for Jessica, of my most favorite cake in the world. 

Everyone in the restaurant is now in love with Carrot Cake. It was joy to make something for my friends that they weren't familiar with and share my love of Carrot Cake with Peru.

If you're in Cusco and want some real good carrot cake, Alturas Kitchen knows what you want! xoxoxoxo

Peter & I cooling the cake outside the restaurant because we were impatient to ice the cake, and then eat it.
