Carrot cake

Recommended Posts

Julias

My darling daughter is a champion baker and today she made me a carrot cake with splenda instead of sugar and almond meal instead of regular flour. She put fresh blueberries in to replace raisins and of course all the other ingredients like nuts, carrots and cinnamon. The cream cheese icing also substitutes sugar. I am sure there are still a minimal number of carbs in this but nothing like a "real" cake. It smells fantastic and I can't wait to try it and to see whether my meter likes it too!

You are so lucky to have such a sweetheart for a daughter. Your post made my mouth water. I really miss the goodies. My kids live too far away.

 

I wonder if I could hire someone to cook and bake for me. I copied your recipe just in case.
