carrot cake fever


it's hard to believe that today is already the last day of march, and that easter is just a few days away.  easter and carrots seem to be synonymous in my mind.  i'm always in the mood for carrot cake this time of year because it's such a classic.  whether it's in cake format or in cupcake format, carrot cake with cream cheese frosting can't be beat.

carrot cake isn't just for dessert.  you can incorporate carrots into your easter brunch with hot cross carrot cake pancakes or carrot walnut pancakes.  you can even drink your carrots in carrot apple ginger juice.  the easter bunny would be proud.

here are some other great carrot-cake inspired recipes that sound great for easter . . .
- carrot cake cookies
carrot cake scones
- carrot cake cheesecake
- carrot cake doughnuts
- carrot cake biscotti
- carrot cake muffins
- carrot cake waffles
carrot cake crepes

what are your favorite carrot cake recipes?
love, laurie

Everything looks delightful. I think I would really like the carrot cake cheesecake. Do you want to make it for me?
