I have two desserts that I know are sure-fire crowd-pleasers. One is made-from-scratch chocolate cream pie. Labor intensive, rich, dreamy. The other is carrot cake. Spicy, carroty, homey, and topped with not-too-sweet cream cheese frosting.
Huzzy’s clients (and family) were here for lunch the other day. Carrot cake seemed a good match to the soup/salad/sandwich fest.
There was one slice left over after lunch because everyone requested to take some home.
Here is the recipe. David Lebowitz is a genius.
I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
