I’ve written before about my efforts to feed our little family wholesome, healthy food. When I saw my friend Zoe had posted an interpretation of Happyolk’s Beet, Seed and Blood Orange Cake on her blog, Rub a Dub Dub, I resolved to try it out. Zoe’s Carrot, Walnut and Orange Breakfast Cake has a lot going for it – carrots, dates and nuts for starters.
I followed the recipe, although I will admit to eyeballing my quantities of carrot and walnuts. I always figure close enough is near enough with these types of components – I do measure dry and wet ingredients.
I’m not sure whether it was my unpredictable oven, the fact I eyeballed the carrot, the gluten free flour I use, or if my oranges were particularly juicy, but the cake took an extra 20 minutes to bake.
