I think my favorite cake is the carrot cake! It has so a special flavor and the ingridients are so different than the other cakes…You know, when I was little my mum made this cake and I thought: “Omg, carrot with cake? No, please.” But then I tried it and I was so wonder because of the good taste and this special flavor that I never taste before! And yes, you can make this cake in a healthy way too. Actually the original recipe is quite healthy, so I just changed some ingridients but not that much! Let’s start with the recipe!
