So Henry and his girlfriend Sonya were visiting from the northeast and I wanted to make them something. They asked for carrot cake, and I had already had a recipe from a previous post. But I decided to try a different one. This was waaaaay better than the first one! The first time I had made carrot cake, the frosting was so good, better than the cake. This time, I felt like the cake was so moist it didn't even need any frosting. It was a huge hit with Henry, Sonya and Barney. They loved the frosting and thought it went perfectly with this. Sonya insists I should add this to my bake to order list, so I did :)
As for the frosting, I made my favorite cream cheese one...
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (whip it to stiff peaks and set aside)
1 pkt of cream cheese (8 oz)
2/3 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Blend the cheese, sugar and vanilla together and add in the stiff cream at the end. It's irresistibly soft and creamy.
Garnished with pecans! Mainly because I forgot to put them into the batter...
