I’ve been wanting to add a simpler carrot cake like this one to the blog for some time now. My other carrot cake recipe is so good, and I’m not sure it’s possible to beat that one (which I’ve made here, here and here) but it does require a lot more work and ingredients. I wanted to make a recipe that was really simple and also delicious, and with if I may say so, the best cream cheese frosting I’ve ever made. The cream just takes it to another level, and makes it so fluffy. You can of course omit the cream if you don’t have any at home, but I do recommend trying it at some point. So good!
This is my first time (ever) growing flowers and herbs in a raised bed! I haven’t lived in a house with a garden since I was a kid. I still don’t have a garden, but our landlord provided us with a raised bed where I could plant some things. It’s been so much fun to see everything grow and to be able to use flowers and herbs from there. Hopefully next year I’ll be able to grow carrots like these ones!
