Are you a fan of Carrot Cake? I enjoy carrot cake, but I am not the biggest fan because most carrot cakes contain a thick layer of frosting, and I wouldn’t say I like frosting. Well, I started making my own because it is so simple, and homemade will always beat store-bought.
To be honest, nobody in my family likes frosting unless it’s whipped cream cheese and preferably homemade cream cheese-based frosting.
If I make a real cake, which is extremely rare, but if I happen to make a nice cake usually use whipped cream instead of the frosting because it tastes so much better.
On the other hand, carrot cake and cream cheese frosting go perfectly together. Don’t you agree? When I started making my own I realized that I do not hate it at all.
I had quite many notorious bakers in a family that I grew up with. They would bake their heart out, and me, well, I know how to make rolls, pies, bread, and things of that nature.
Cakes? Cakes are not my niche. Although I merely improved, I still can’t decorate for shit. I am just being honest here!
I do have more of a savory tooth if you know what I mean, however, I enjoy sweets as well, especially after dinner.
This is a simple cake, and that’s what I genuinely like the most — Cup of coffee and a simple slice of cake to make my day! These bars are so delicious. Sometimes I add seeds and oats or maple syrup instead of sugar. I hope you guys like it as much as we did.
