  • Chocolate carrot cake

    you probably wouldn't think of putting
    chocolate and carrots in the same food,
    but this is sooooo good.

    Chocolate Carrot Cake

    1 cup Granulated sugar
    1 cup Cooking oil
    3 Large eggs
    1 tsp. Vanilla
    1 1/3 cups All-purpose flour
    1/4 cup Cocoa
    1 1/2 tsp. Baking powder
    1 1/2 tsp. Baking soda
    1 1/2 tsp. Ground cinnamon
    1/2 Tsp. Salt

    2 cups Finely grated carrots

    Beat sugar and cooking oil
    together in mixing bowl. Add
    eggs 1 at a time, beating
    well after each addition.
    Add vanilla. Mix.
    Stir next 6 ingredients togeth-
    er in separate bowl. Add. Stir
    until moistened.

    Add carrots. Stir. Turn into
    greased and floured 12 cup
    (2.7 L) bundt pan. Bake in
    350°F (175°C) oven for 30 to
    40 minutes or until an inserted
    wooden pick comes out
    clean. Cool. Makes 1 cake.

    for topping, I just melt milk
    chocolate chips in a small pan,
    and spoon it onto the cake (around
    the top, and it should run down
    the sides of the cake)

    That sounds really good David and fattening too. If it's over 500 calories for a tiny slice, you know it's going to be soooo good. That one sounds like it could be.
