It’s September, it’s a bit chilly outside and I’m sitting under a blanket drinking warm green tea while I write this post.
Can life get any more blissful?
I really don’t think so.
As you can imagine, since every other post of mine talks about how much:
- I love autumn.
- I hate summer.
I’m really liking life right now. I mean, I do also write many posts complaining about how stressed with university I am (which I’m not right now since, hello, I finished all my credits pretty much) and… Mmmm…. How badly I hate doing dishes? But yeah, the majority of my posts are about loathing summer and whatnot.
What a cool blog I write, don’t I? At least the recipes are good, I guess????
This is a really wonderful one, if I’m allowed to say so myself. Heck yes I am, I am my own boss. Let me throw what little is left of my humbleness off the window and say:
This cake is SO amazing.
I will say, though, if you’ve been reading my blog for long you’ll know that I… Mmmm… I have expressed my hatred for all things carrot cake many many times. But today, I’m a new person. Consuelo was born again, this time, a carrot cake lover.
Let me introduce you guys to the carrot cake which turned the ultimate carrot cake hater into a fangirl for all things carrot cake.
Anyway, let me tell you how it happened since I happen not to be in a massive rush for once (read: all my previous posts). Not that anyone actually reads these posts but hey, I’ll write them anyway.
So this whole carrot cake thing started with me doing an Instagram story poll asking what cake flavour would you all want to see on the blog soon.
Cue the poll results: a 50% of you guys were asking for… dramatic drumroll… carrot cake.
Carrot cake? Do y’all actually want carrot cake of all things when you could actually have one, I don’t know, peanut butter-tastic chocolate cake??????
You’re all bananas.
Also, this is another interruption to cringe at how poorly my newly incorporated Spanish translator will translate that last sentence.
“Son todos ustedes unos plátanos”
Anyway, back to the part where you’re all out of your mind: carrots belong(ed) on salad, not cake.
Boy, was I wrong.
Here’s the thing, I consider myself to be a pretty terrible person overall, BUT I do like listening to my followers, so you bet I had to get in the kitchen and make the frigging cake. So I did. And while I was at it, I listened to all of the demands to get a:
- Naturally sweetened cake
- Which is also whole wheat
You’re welcome, here you have a cake which is not only made from 100% whole spelt flour and sweetened with applesauce (and a small percentage of coconut sugar), but absolutely moist, dense and delicious too.
Never in a million years would have I thought it would turn out so good, but here we are. Let me swallow my words. And another piece of cake while we’re at it.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
