Carrot cake one of my favorite cakes, because it stays deliciously moist while giving the cake its a delicious taste. This time I added pepernoten and gingerbread spices. A delicious cake with Sinterklaas!
And during coffee, we can enjoy this delicious carrot cake with pepernoten. You can still finish it on time.
Next recipe we will switch to Christmas spirit and I have super nice ideas. But more about that tomorrow!
