Carrot cake II

I made carrot cake again. This time round I made a square shaped CC. The height of the cake is lower than the round bake pan I used to bake CC the previous occasion. It seems to me cakes somehow look more yum when they r tall and round shaped. Personal opinion.

I am elated when I saw the baked square CC. I added more walnuts too. I understand that some carrot cakes included raisins but I omitted them. I prefer raisins on their own. I baked CC on Tuesday evening because I want to make a petite size CC ( by cutting the big square into small squares) for one of my good friends (always so supportive), May to celebrate her coming birthday on 3th Dec 2010. The recipe is adapted from Joy of Baking, which can be found in my earlier post on carrot cake.

Happy Birthday, May !!!
