Oh my gosh…Carrot cake …YUM! We used the remainder of our carrots from this seasons garden produce. These carrots are a sweeter variety so this cake uses a little less sugar then normally called for. In any event I think you are going to LOVE this cake recipe!
First about the pan. It’s a Good Cook Mini Loaf Pan and I have been in heaven since receiving this pan! I can’t tell you enough how much I really love this loaf pan. First its truly non stick, meaning you don’t need to line it [ I recommend you do just to keep it in good condition] and your loaves will plop right out! No struggle, cutting around the edges or forcing them out, they will literally fall right out. We also received a package of winter holiday parchment paper in a Christmas type theme. You can also get 25% off this loaf pan at the Good Cook website. The pan is on sale right now for $8.83. Use PROMO code SWEETLOAF for an additional 25% off!
