Recipes for the Soul: The Perfect Carrot Cake
How to create the perfect carrot cake?
Well…….it is a carrot cake! So it’s all about the carrot. You don’t want to get carrots that are old, or that aren’t sweet. My trick….find perfectly sweet carrots!
The recipe to delicousnes
Traditionally a carrot cake is paired with a cream cheese frosting. So that is what I did for mine. I mean who doesn’t like cream cheese frosting. I am a person who doesn’t really measure out portions when I am making frosting but here is a quick, yummy recipe that you could easily make!
Cream Cheese Frosting
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 stick of softened butter
1 tsp vanilla (the fresher the better)
Hint of cinnamon
Hint of Salt
1 1/2 to 2 cups of Powder Sugar or Swerve Confectioners Sugar Replacement if you are trying to be a tad but healthy…I mean this is a whole wheat recipe after all!
You will mix it all up! Until it comes to be a nice beautiful consistency.
Enjoy this delicious treat
