updating: the cake and things owned by my baby visitor who came with her parents. :)
Today I had lunch at a small restaurant here in college, it was rice and beans with a salad that was so-so.
This cake it really quick to prepare, then you can do a thousand things while it's on the oven.
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar (lately I've been using organic granulated sugar for everything)
1 large carrot or 2 small ones
1/3 cup oil
1 level tablespoon baking powder
1 pinch cinnamom, if you like.
I sifted the flour and baking powder, processed everything else in the blender, then mixed it all in a bowl. Done.
This batter is heavier/creamier than usual cake batter.
Supposedly, it must stay in the oven for 40 minutes. But it wasn't ready yet, so I lowered the heat and left it there 20 minutes more.
It has grown so much that the top cracked! Came out pretty yellow, and I think I tastes good. When I get home I'll ask them about it, and take a picture.
PS: as I was in rush, I didn't make icing. Instead I sprinkled some confectioner's sugar.
