LOOKING for: Carrot cake with cinnamon and orange zest
Years ago I used to bake what I think of as a classic carrot cake. Unfortunately I have lost the recipe and it's been gone for years too, so I doubt it ever will turn up. I went on a no sugar, no sweets diet and most baking went out the window. Things are different now and I want to bake a carrot cake!
The only thing I remember is I especially liked the combination of cinnamon and orange zest, and I think it was the kind of batter where you whip sugar and eggs, then carefully add flour and other ingredients. I think it called for sunflower oil, and no butter.
I have looked at different recipes and most seem to have at least two or three different spices, and very few have orange zest. Could I be wrong about cinnamon as single spice? I'm not at all sure what the recipe really called for.
Any thoughts or good ideas when it comes to carrot cake?
