"The carrot cake was fabulous"
~Anna and Alex Yarbrough~
I think my favorite cake in the world is carrot. A lot of folks who say they don't like vegetables in their sweets change their minds quickly when they taste these recipes.
Brides and grooms who think they are going to order a chocolate or white cake, often leave my tastings with the carrot cake order instead. It's that good.
My best ever and I mean my VERY best carrot cake recipe is truly to die for. People who say they don't like it, love this one. It's really more like a tropical cake with coconut, pineapple, nuts and pureed carrot. You will Love it!!!
The original recipe for carrot cake is usually made with raw carrots so that is why I call this raw carrot cake the original. It is little less time consuming to prepare than the recipe above, because you don't have to cook and puree the carrots, although you do have to grate them If you have a food processor it will be easier.
Simply calling it moist does not do this very special cake justice. One of the BEST recipes on the planet, is more like it. It's the filling that makes this one extra special. Give yourself two days to make this legendary dessert from the Frog Commissary.
A friend gave me a copy of this and raved about it as being the best. I looked up the commissary and discovered that they also do catering and weddings. So if you live in the Philadelphia area and are looking to celebrate with some very special food and what looks like a very beautiful atmosphere then check out the Commissary website.
The icing for these wonderful carrot cake recipes is almost always cream cheese based. This one has butter and lemon which turns your dessert into a gourmet delight. Please don't let that stop you from trying out new and interesting combination's. like chocolate ganache, caramel or buttercreams fillings and icings.
