THE BEST CARROT CAKE RECIPES FROM THE WEB
However I always try to impress my family and friends with original recipes, recipes variations or dishes from other latitudes.
That is how I started my web search last week searching for an out-of-the-world recipe that would make my family (firt time trying this cake) love it at once.
Probably you may think I have high expectations by trying to make them fall in love with one dish out of nothing, whatever the nature of the dish is. Well it might sound a bit selfish, but yes, I do.
Though I have to confess that we have very different palates. They like a limited number of flavors and are a bit reluctant to try new combinations, or combinations that sound weird to them, even if they end up liking them. Me, on the contrary, I am very much openend to combining new flavors and trying new ingredients.
So what is the result? Well sometimes, they only know a part of the ingredients in a certain dish. I keep the others for myself. 🙂 The experience over the years feeding them showed me that it is the best strategy and it is for good.
Anyway, back to the search for the best carrot cake recipe, here is a list of the ones that gave me the best results.
