    If there’s a cake that really makes me feel all the warm and fuzzy Fall feelings…it’s carrot cake. I know what you’re thinking. What about pumpkin? Or apple? Carrot cake has all the Fall spices though, and it’s moist and so flavorful with every bite. You can add walnuts, or raisins, or not add anything at all. . . and it still turns out great! You don’t need cake flour, all purpose is just fine, and you don’t even need butter for the cake! So, without further ado, I think it’s time for an updated carrot cake recipe. I’m talking…

        I strongly recommend you stop everything you’re doing and go bake this cake. If you’re looking for the perfect single layer coffee cake to eat with your morning coffee (or tea) – this is it! There are two (not so) secret ingredients that really give this cake the fluffy, can’t put your fork down consistency: Mango, and ricotta cheese! Combine those with freshly grated carrots, and some yummy cinnamon type spices, top with a decadent streusel, drizzle with some amazing cream cheese glaze, and you’ve got yourself a Β mouthwatering breakfast treat.

      “Wherever you go – no matter what the weather – always bring your own sunshine.” So if it’s winter, and you’re going to a party, bring your own bright yellow cake! That would be the literal interpretation of this quote, right? I’d been wanting to do this petal frosting thing for a while, and I finally did it.
