Easter Baking

Filed under: baking,recipes — by heatherdc @ 11:47 pm

This is, hands down, the Best Carrot Cake recipe that I have yet to come across. And what makes it even better? It’s from Cooking Light. Meaning it’s “healthy”, or….healthier. It uses Canola Oil, which has a more favorable ratio of unsaturated:saturated fats, and contains those heart healthy Omega-3s that you’ve heard all about. The recipe also substitutes some of the fat with a pureed fruit (common technique), crushed pineapple. This makes it super moist and adds a lot of flavor.

The recipe can be found at CookingLight.com. Go check it out, its yummmyyy!

((When I make this, I usually just buy the “Whipped Cream Cheese” frosting. Because it’s delicious. And easier. Do what you do, either way it’s amazing!))
