Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting (Delia Smith)/ Birthday Cake Pin It
This year no fancy cake for my birthday boy. Since I wanted to bake carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, I take easy way out try on Delia Smith Saturday Carrot Cake  I can't believe with easy mix and stir method yields such moist and yummy cake. Not forget to mention is a healthy type of cake.
Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting (Delia Smith)/ Birthday Cake To please my kids, I added cocoa powder and chocolate chips. They go well together. As for the topping I scatter some pistachio nuts on cream cheese frosting. I am happy with the 'Not So Perfect' birthday cake. Not only easy for the baker (me) but also 'go easy' to our tummy too :) Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting (Delia Smith)/ Birthday Cake Adapted from Delia Smith Saturday Carrot Cake with modification
