Carrot Pudding Cake

November 28, 2010


Author Notes: I came up with this recipe for my boyfriend, who loves carrot cake and is very health-conscious. I personally am not a fan of desserts that try to be a healthy version of a regular dessert and end up not being too delicious, but I think this is a nice puddingy dessert with carrot cake flavors that even someone not concerned with nutrition information can enjoy. It can also be doubled and baked in a larger dish - the cooking time will stay the same.VanessaS
