Healthier Carrot Cake – Less Calories, More Health and Taste
I fell in love with carrot cakes from the first moment I tried one some time ago. But this was still pretty late in my life – I was over 20. I think that the idea of baking a cake with a vegetable was in Poland at least pretty foreign for many years ;-).

Since then I was on a search for the perfect recipe. I tried lots of different ones but was never completely satisfied. And then one day I decided to do it my way: healthier (wholemeal flour and addition of apples) and lighter (little sugar and low-fat cream cheese). The result was incredible – my whole family agreed that my Healthier Carrot Cake was the best carrot cake I had ever baked!
