Carrot Cake by Homemade Carrot Cake

When I was 11, I spotted a yummy looking carrot cake, and asked my mom if she could buy me a slice. I was a chubby kid, so she told me that I should just skip the slice and opt for real carrots instead.

“The nutrients of the carrot come out when they are cooked, so this cake is healthier than the regular carrots,” I told her with pomp. I got my carrot cake, but considering the sugar and fat used in baking the cake, it was unlikely that the cake was healthier than real carrots.

Homemade Carrot Cake was near my old uni, so it was easy to drive over and grab a slice. It was not a creation that would make my heart melt, but it was just right enough for me to always come back to. The cream thinly enveloped the cake, while the cake was not too sweet. There were better, creamier cakes, but this was one that I always went back to on good, bad, and random days.
