I am always on the lookout for a good carrot cake recipe. My favorite up to now has been the Silver Palate one (a future post!), but using the almighty Google, I found this winner. Served at Morton's Steakhouse and based on its CEO's mother's recipe, this dessert stands out because buttermilk is used two-fold. First, in the cake batter and
second, cooked with butter for a glaze, which makes the cake extra moist.
The Daughter fashioned her decorative carrots out of Starbursts. Aren't they adorable?
The flecks in the frosting are orange zest .
This cake is definitely at the top of my favorite carrot cake list now.
Delicious, extra moist, just enough carrot flavor and lots of cream cheese frosting.
