Carrot Cake
50 mins (prep 25, cooking 25)
16 ingredients
10-12 servings
This is a special-occasion cake. It has a deep, rich flavour and colour - the cocoa does some happy alchemy, but is not at all noticeable in the taste. Another secret is to use the small holes of your box grater to get the carrot texture just right.
