This week's In-Season Recipe Swap is for recipes featuring carrots as a main ingredient!
I love to dice fresh carrots, boil until tender, drain, and toss with salt and butter. Yum! But that's not much of a recipe to share. :)
So instead, here is a recipe from my grandma: Old-Fashioned Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing.
This carrot cake is flavorful and moist, and uses 3 full cups of grated carrots. The 9x13-inch cake is gone in a flash! :)
Here's a tip for substituting carrot in pumpkin recipes: Wash or peel carrots and boil until tender. Drain well. Mash and substitute in your favorite recipes that call for pumpkin! :)
