My husband Murphy didn't want 64 candles on his birthday cake. I didn't want such a high calorie count cake.
So I decided to take care of both problems. I got the candle numbers and I google a recipe for healthy carrot cake.
Well Murphy birthday fell on Thanksgiving this year.
I didn't get the chance to get the candle on his cake before it was cut. So I did it after wards.
Did a little changes on this recipes. First of all Confession time...I went and purchase a can of cream cheese icing....How many of you use the term “frosting”? It was a lot cheaper and easier to do, for $1.99 plus sale tax.
I've never! Well not very often I been obedient and follow a recipes to the letter. I add about ½ teaspoon of ginger.
I'm a person to try new things. The recipe said to put the grated carrots in flour mixture. We had both apples and carrots around the place. So instead of two cups of carrots. I did 1 cup of apples and 1 cup of carrots. There a local discount store call Yoders here in Bonners Ferry, that offered apples at .50¢ a pound. Since I mention there business. I should be nice and give there FACE BOOK page a shout out.
Like anything else we all need to watch our prices. Not everything in there is a bargain.
I honest can't say much about eggs now. I didn't have to pick out any shell. If I did I did wash my hands before I started and use soap.
Very last thing was to fold in there flour mixture sugar. Confession time...I didn't use buttermilk instead I made up sour milk. I just add a cap full of lemon juice to the milk. To the best of my knowledge the only size you can get buttermilk is a quart size.
Anyhow I was trying to make this recipe as cheap as I can.
Since we all ready had walnut. Chop them up and use them instead of Pecans.
