My trials, tribulations and triumphs while attempting to bake my way through Lorraine Pascales book, Baking made Easy, and hopefully proving that yes, it is.

I like carrot cake, it's not something I would immediately go for, especially where chocolate is involved. This is a huge cake, a 9 inch diameter and is meant to be three layers but I stuck to just two. I don't think I have ever grated so much carrot in my life! My issue was my sugar, I got it down from the back of the top cupboard to discover it was one huge lump! I had to spend ages sticking it in the food processor just to make it usable. So despite the fact that this should have been a quick bake it turned into a huge debacle, but it was completely worth it. It was really moist and even a couple of days later it still tasted great. Highly recommend this bake, the icing is also really yummy!!!
