Chocolate Carrot Cake Recipe
with Cream Cheese Topping

A Chocolate Carrot Cake may seem like an odd combination. If you have never tasted a carrot cake before, I would urge you to try it before passing it off. I've made quite a number of this cake for birthdays and parties. Each time, it's a sure winner unless for those who hates carrot or cinnamon.

Carrot is quite a versatile tuber. You can take it savoury or sweet and it taste just as wonderful. It also gives your cake a nice orange colour and with a nice cream cheese topping, it's simply too attractive to eat.

This little tuber is full of health goodness too. It's a good source of Vitamins such as A and K. And the phytonutrients is good for eyesight.
