I have been craving my super moist carrot cake; but as per my usual I hate repeating recipes over. This means I’m putting a spin on it with bananas.

• 1 tsp baking soda
• ½ tsp sea salt
• ½ tsp ground cloves

• 2 eggs
• ¾ tsp vanilla bean paste
• 2 cups grated carrots (4 carrots)

My thoughts
I finally got to grate some carrots using a proper grater; it made my life easy for sure. My arm still hurt but it was much easier which I was thankful for. I love making breads; but I always forget that the prep time is so much longer than cake for me. An hour into prepping and I was even saying to myself how long have been prepping. This cake was so moist I had to double check the doneness of it. It indeed was fully baked it was just that moist and dense. I could taste the different spices and it wasn’t sweet at all. My taste testers loved it and were very happy I thought of them and brought and saved them some bread. Even one taster that isn’t keen on fruits and veg in their baked goods even eagerly asked my to save a slice and it was enjoyed.
