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