Background & History
I first experienced this recipe with apple cake. Very thick cake batter that was combined with a juicy fruit and had a very tasty result. Then I baked a combination of pumpkin close to the same cake and I fell in love with its taste. Now this carrot cupcake is one of the most delicious cakes I have ever baked.
