Carrot spoon cake

Postby msnflyer » Sun Jan 22, 2012 6:01 pm

Decided to make a carrot cake today. Was low on AP flour so used a 50/50 mix of AP and Bob's Red Mill whole wheat pastry flour. After baking in a bundt pan, cooling, it didn't want to let go of the pan. Couldn't waste it, of course, so when it was cool I chunked it up, layered it in 2 pans and spread it with cream cheese frosting. A sprinkle of cinnamon and dessert is ready. The rest of dinner is pot roast, roast potatoes, and carrots. Gotta love lazy winter Sundays.

You just cannot go wrong with carrot cake and cream cheese. Major YUM.

Grate some orange peel and add some honey, or dump a can of crushed pineapple, into the cream cheese for extra yum.

The best grease I've found for pans is coconut oil. Works better than butter, because it doesn't have any of the milk solids that can cause sticking, and it works better than vegetable oil, because it's a lot higher in saturated fat. Everybody knows that a dusting of flour on the grease helps, but I'd rather not do that if I don't have to, and with coconut oil, I don't usually have to.

I know the rules of rock, paper, scissors but how do you play carrot spoon cake?

First lard, now coconut oil ... I'm hesitant to ask about the origin of your handle.

I thought about using Tricky Dick, but then I heard that he didn't use lube. We bakers are pretty serious about grease.
