So as tradition in my family for Christmas we all get together and celebrate Christmas eve with a home full of love and joy. All branches of the family come together and is such a magical and beautiful fun night! Getting to see relatives we haven’t seen in a while and the feeling of being home, truly home is describable, simply great and it fills up any heart 🙂
Every year we all bring something to help filling up the dinner table. This year I decided to try a Carrot Cake using a recipe given to me this summer by a very nice group of surfer girls who stayed at my house this summer to surf. While there were here they made this delicious Carrot Cake that I had to ask for the recipe! Finally now I got the time and moment to do it so here it is the recipe of a delicious and fairly easy to make Carrot Cake. The only tip I give you straight way is – do not beat the flour into the egg mixture with the electrical mixer, stir it gently with a wire whip. I say this because it cost twice of the ingredients and time since I had to make a second one because the first one didn’t turned out the way I hoped! But oh well it is all about don’t giving up and gladly the second one was just fine, so learning by my mistake, don’t use the electrical mixer for flour, wire whip, wire whip! 🙂
