Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake

I. turned seven last week.  Seven!  Yikes.  I still can’t believe we made it out of the first year.  Carrot cake is her standard birthday cake, because it’s so good.

      Norma-Here’s the recipe that I use: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Best-Carrot-Cake-Ever/Detail.aspx. The only changes that I make are that I leave out the raisins and use sucanat instead of white sugar.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sucanat. Sucanat is a non-refined cane sugar. I get it from our bulk natural foods company we order from regularly (Azure Standard, do you order from them? They deliver in CO.) Anyway, it’s just a healthier form of sugar because it retains minerals and we like the richer flavor. I generally buy a 50# bag for right around $50. It is similar to Rapadura, if you’ve heard of it; it’s more widely available than sucanat, I think.

        Oh, you totally have to start ordering. Our homeschool group created an ordering group, which is much expanded and no longer is only homeschool group members, but we order almost every two weeks and it’s such a great way to save money and still get high quality, natural and organic foods. Their customer service isn’t always the best, but for the price, I’ll deal with it. Let me know if you have any questions. It can be frustrating to figure out how it works at first!
