I don’t know how many slices of this I ate. I stopped counting after three.
There’s something to be said for a cake that counts as a vegetable. I always knew cake was the base of the nutritional pyramid, and living the dream is admittedly sweet. Perfectly sweet, actually, with a hint of cinnamon.
I hope you had a lovely spring break, or at least took a well-deserved pace slowing to smell the roses of this beautiful season. I took the opportunity to laugh with friends, dirty a lot of dishes in the kitchen, spend lazy afternoons on the terrace with my yoga mat and fruits (or veggies) of my kitchen labor.
But it’s good to be back in a routine. The end of a break is bittersweet, much like the chocolate I didn’t give up for Lent. Oops. *conspicuously steps away and distracts friends with cake*
Shred the carrots in your Magimix, who has at this point become a full-fledged member of your family.
Set aside some of the batter, as it’s going to be the secret ingredient on our frosting. Fold the carrots into the rest of your batter.
Feel free to add walnuts for texture and authenticity, but I’m just not a nutty gal. More taste testing and spoon licking occurred on my part than I would care to admit.
Bake the cake for one of the longest thirty minute intervals of your life. I’m sorry about that. Allow me to offer Netflix and a promise of cake to pass the time.
Get lost in the universe of Mad Men and have this beauty greet you at the end of the tunnel/episode.
Make sure to effectively get frosting everywhere while attempting action shots.
I would have been more annoyed by having to clean everything up if this cake didn’t taste so darn good.

Did you do anything for spring break?
Globetrotting? Staycation? Even if you didn’t have a break per se, I hope you had a restful few weeks.
