I watch a lot of cooking shows on TV… I love to watch how other people cook, their tricks and how they use the ingredients. Most of the time, it’s not because of the recipes because I always change it. I like it cause I can take ideas and then make my own things.
But when it comes to cakes, we have to follow the recipe… I still make little little changes, but in general I really have to stick by the instructions.
American carrot cake has always been a favorite of mine. The problem was that most of the versions I’ve found in the past included dried grapes. And I really don’t like them. When eating a piece of cake I would just try to take out the dried fruit pieces. Which was not always an easy task. So one day I saw someone baking an American carrot cake and there weren’t any dried fruits involved. Just nice dried nuts 🙂 I had to make it… I got the recipe from foodnetwork.com and I honestly don’t know who was the author… but thank you whoever you are 🙂
So if you are in the mood for a delicious piece of case, give it a try…
