  1. Ha, wat een leuk recept.
    Zelf ben ik gek op Worteltjestaart en bak hem regelmatig. Deze versie ken ik niet dus zal hem snel eens maken.
    Bedankt voor het recept!!

  2. Ummmmmmmmm - that looks delicious. Carrot cake is my favorite too and I haven't had any in a looooooooooong time.

  3. I'm so hungry right now for that cake! I think I'll have to have my teeth removed from the monitor! I will definitely make it. Thankyou!

  4. The problem with carrot cake is grating the carrots!
