Believe it or not, I’ve been on a successful baking streak. As comfortable as I feel with pots and pans and vegetables, unfortunately I’m a terrible baker. I’m a very “pinch of this, bit of that” type of cook, and that just doesn’t work in baking. Pair that with a less-than-optimal oven, and you’ve got yourself heaps of black cakes with raw centres. Every now and then however, I run into a baking recipe that for some reason just works. There is one blog in particular where I nearly always succeed when I try one of the recipes: Chocolate Covered Katie. I’ve been following her blog for a few years now as her recipes are all vegan, healthy (compared to traditional recipes) and easy.
When my birthday came around and I wanted to treat my guests to some homemade cake, Chocolate Covered Katie is who I turned to. I decided to give her Healthy Carrot Cake a go, and it was a huge success. It’s moist, sweet, delicious… Just perfect. Definitely give this one a go if you’re looking for a healthy-ish vegan homemade treat!
