Every year at work we have around Valentine's Day a little ritual called Secret Pals, where you draw the name of a co-worker and spoil them all week with little gifts. At the end of the week you serve them with their favourite dessert and reveal your identity to them. One year I had someone who loved carrot cake so I wanted to give him something a little different so I looked through my cookbooks and found this recipe, which is a bit different than my usual carrot cake recipes. He absolutely loved it (and so did my husband!)
