ariel's making ... carrot and zucchini cake
for my auntie yam's bday i decided to make her a carrot and zucchini cake. oh so healthy, right?
for this cake, you'll need:
1 c. grated organic carrots
1 grated organic zucchini
1/2 c. organic molasses
1 organic free-range egg
1 stick organic butter, melted
2 T. organic cinnamon
1/4 c. each of organic raisins, organic sunflower seeds and organic shredded coconut
1/2 t. each of baking powder and baking soda
1/2 c. organic fair-trade sugar
1 1/4 c. organic whole wheat flour
mix everything together except the flour. then add the flour to the wet mixture. (it's really that simple!)
pour the thick cake batter into a buttered cast iron pan and bake 350* for about 25 minutes or until it passes the clean toothpick test.
i topped it with some organic fair-trade powdered sugar and two tiny-mini organic carrots when it was all cool, and served it with some straus vanilla ice cream.
there was probably enough cake for about ten people ... but the five of us had no trouble devouring almost the whole thing in one night!
