For those who are carrot cake fanatics and those who just can't understand what a carrot is doing in a cake.. this recipe is for YOU!
I was never 100% sold on the idea of carrot cake until I tried this recipe.. and now, I'd go so far in saying that this is my favourite cake! With its moist, light texture it feels like your not eating anything too naughty.. plus, it has a shed load of carrots in; surely we can count it as one of our 5 a day?
The children loved making this cake, mixing all the bits together then returning once the cake is cooked and cooled, ready to ice!
Whilst we waited for the cake to bake the children went on a carrot hunt. Simply printing out images and hiding them around the play room; lots of fun, getting everyone involved and allowing the children to practice their counting skills when tallying up how many carrots they found!
We also took advantage of the "wastage" from the carrots and did carrot top printing, throwing in a few potatoes as well to create little masterpieces!
