I love this carrot cake. I love how simple it is to make, how the colour is beautiful and bright, and how I have very few dishes I have to wash after making it. #washinguphatersunite!
Most of all though, I love how it tastes, as it’s so deliciously moist and pairs perfectly with a cup of coffee or tea. It’s a down-to-earth, honest cupcake that isn’t pretending to be something it’s not.
In Brasil, this is the carrot cake I grew up eating. I had never tried the three-layer, cream cheese filled, walnut heavy, raisin loving carrot cake you can find in London until I moved here. It was a completely different creature and while it has many virtues, sometimes I just need my perfectly balanced smooth carrot cake.
Oh, and in case you needed more convincing, I made a batch when I had some girl friends over and we finished the whole.damn.thing in one sitting. We were 4 girls. No regrets.
