I’m so excited about carrots that I had to make another carrot cake, yes baby good things come in pairs, or more like 3 if you also count those carrot cake cupcakes that everyone raved about. But in this case is a farm to table organic carrot cake using only natural organic ingredients. This is the elevated yet down to earth version of a traditional carrot cake and it’s incredibly delicious and so fluffy you’ll want to make it every day, easter or not.
Actually, think of this as the organic carrot cake you want all your friends, parents, boyfriend/girlfriend/SO to meet.
It has a burst of flavor, just the perfect amount of spiciness and it’s so fluffy and packed with carrots that, can you give me another slice?
This past Sunday I went to the Farmers market in the pursuit of the prettiest carrots. Truth is when a recipe is so simple and easy, you really want good quality ingredients. Ingredients make all the difference in your desserts, they are the ones that can make or break it (think: if you buy chocolate that tastes less than stellar your bronies are going to taste less than stellar) and they are definitely the ones that make your treats shine in all it’s bright glory.
SO when I want something to be really bright and fresh and packed with flavors I go the organic way, hence my visit to the farmers market (in case you are wondering that’s the farm part of the farm to table).
Since this is the best possible carrot cake in the planet I had to go with the best organic all purpose flour I could find. Enter Bob’s Reb Mill Organic Unbleached All Purpose White Flour It’s a super versatile kitchen staple that you can use to bake any single thing. What I’m trying to say if that if you have a small kitchen ( I feel you my friend!) then you can only have a pack of this flour and call it a day because the baking world is yours.
I also love love love the fact that is the same high protein flour used by professional bakers. Do you know what that means? PROFESSIONAL TASTING DESSERTS FOR EVERYONE!!!!
Ok maybe I got a bit too excited but seriously, everything will be super fluffy and airy, and tender and perfect and everyone is going to ask you where you bought your organic carrot cake.
Also, an if you are trying to follow a gluten-free lifestyle or have allergies then you can totally rock your organic carrot cake with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour. Seriously I swear by it every time I’m going to make a gluten-free baked good, because, well because it’s so good you are not going to believe is gluten free, that’s why. And treats made with it end up with terrific taste and texture and you don’t need to add any other specialty ingredient that’s probably difficult to find and expensive.
