Classic Carrot Cake

Looking at this blog’s statistics from the last week or so, it appears that quite a few people have stumbled here through Google searches for no-bake chocolate fudge. A recipe like this one.

It reminded me that I have done a lot of baking lately. What, with all my running on the spot treadmill and other profanities. And with a colleague’s birthday coming up this weekend – it was the perfect time to bake a cake.

By request, a carrot cake.

Having never made a carrot cake before, I turned to the Internet (is there any other way?) and decided on this recipe: Chelsea’s Classic Carrot Cake.

I tweaked the recipe a little bit (walnuts are expensive!), and used sultanas in cake and only a few walnuts for dressage on the top. Not sure how it tastes, but it looks and smells great.

The recipe was simple, easy to follow, and -even better- just one of many, many on Chelsea’s website. Do check it out.

In the meantime, here’s some food porn:
