It's hard to say what the best thing is about this recipe. Is it how easy it is to make? Or how it comes out perfectly every time? Or is it how well it pairs with the other spicy staples on your dessert table? Everyone knows that pumpkin pie and apple pie feature prominently on most dining room tables at this time of year. I'll take a slice of each, thank you, but if you're looking for something other than pie, that still fills the sugar and spice requirement, you must try this cake.
You probably already have everything you need to make it right in your pantry. The most you might have to pick up is a pound of carrots. You don't even have to remember to take butter out of the fridge because this cake calls for oil instead. I will say that the only real effort required is grating the carrots, but if you have a food processor, and I think you do, then even that step will be quick and easy. Check out the recipe here and please let us know if you try it.
Now you have everything you need for your Thanksgiving meal...everything but the turkey! You can find that here too because we don't want you worrying about such details during our favorite holiday! And if you missed our last post that was overflowing with side dishes, stop and take a look here. If you hurry, you can even sign up for the unpublished side dish recipes! Now is the time to turn on some cooking music (we usually go with Sinatra or Big Band) and revel in the ingredients and recipes at your disposal. It's time to cook! Make it fun. Make it an adventure. Don't worry if something goes wrong. If you're tempted to get stressed over such things, stop and take a step back because now is also the time for gratitude. This year, we're thankful for so many things, the stuff you'd expect like good health, family and friends, but also our tiny kitchen and countless grocery bags full of food that we get to cook up every day. We're grateful for this crazy city we get to live in and all the opportunities it brings our way. If you're reading this post and have the means to cook even a small version of Thanksgiving dinner, you're fortunate. Although it's tempting to want every aspect of the meal and the table to be perfect, we recommend focusing that energy and attention on your guests, your family and friends and of course the friends who have become your family. Now is the time for food and gratitude.
