LOOKING for: Carrot pound cake
The local ethnic groceries carry a loaf form carrot cake that they call carrot pound cake. The consistency is much more like banana bread than pound cake. Not the smooth texture that I associate with pound cake. I love this stuff: my favorite breakfast, spread with whipped cream cheese. There are walnuts and raisins in it, too, and it is dark colored, moist, rich, but not too heavy. Denser than usual homemade carrot cake. It might be intended as a dessert, but since I saw it in loaf form, I have been interpreting it as "breakfast," as I would banana bread. It's not made in-house, but by a bakery in Chicago that makes ethnic east European breads and pastries.
But the price has been going up and up. When I saw last time that it was now priced at $5 a loaf, I sadly put it back. Anyone have a recipe that might be similar? I have carrot muffin recipes, but none are similar in taste or texture. Thanks!
