Carrot cake people

In order to make room for some tomato plants, I pulled a bunch of carrots. And what was I to do with them? Dare I admit, I don't think I've ever made carrot cake before... but through the wonders of the intarwebs, I found the recipe cache at the Ontario liquor control board which has sense lost the recipe, but someone else was smart enough to save it (see link http://acelebrationoffood.blogspot.com/2009/07/honey-butter-carrot-cake-with-toasted.html?m=1 ), and heard about their carrot cake issue... and the honey butter citrus cream cheese carrot cake is awesome!
I found a recipe blog called Susan can cook - and considered labeling this post: Carrotpeople cannot bake. I messed up some basics - I didn't cream the butter (instead melted it). I completely forgot the pecans. As for appearance, I didn't flour the pan so it got stuck, and it seems that a whisk is not the most elegant tool for spreading frosting. But the flavors are amazing... must make this again (properly next time).

  1. That frosting job reminds me of when Mom made the sinking birthday cake. Use a butter knife next time. :)
