Recipe: Carrot and mint cake

Dessert recipes with herbs
May 17, 2009

When I tried Coconut, chocolate and mint cake I found out that adding mint to cake recipes makes them more interesting.

Carote gialleThese are my yellow carrots... ok, I just wanted to show them.

When I will harvest my yellow carrots, I will cook again this cake. I think it will be of a different colour, because this is made with classic orange carrots.
