Week 2 begins and this week I shall be posting some Tea Cakes.
First in the list is a Carrot Cake. This is my daughters recipe , in fact she was the one to make for me. This is such a healthy cake and she makes it very often for my granddaughter's lunch box. This is a perfect recipe which never fails and you can try with great ease.
The orange marmalade takes the carrot cake to a different level, the desiccated coconut is optional, we liked it a lot but can be omitted too. The cake is delicious by itself.
