When I think of summer-y desserts, carrot cake always comes to mind. There’s just something about it being fresh and light that makes me crave it when the temperatures warm up outside. I’ve been making it for years come summer time, usually growing the carrots myself, if I can. I know this may be confusing to some, as the cinnamon and nut meg spices might call for a more fall-y vibe, but the carrot just makes me crave it on a hot day. This year is no different and as I prepare to bake my first carrot cake of the season, I’ve decided to share the recipe with you.
