Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze and Candied Carrots
Who needs layers? Keep things simple with a bundt cake for Easter!
Yes, believe it or not, this is happening: I made a HOLIDAY RECIPE. BEFORE THE HOLIDAY. Like bloggers are supposed to do!
My work schedule has gotten so much more manageable in the past couple of weeks. I’m doing more of what I love. And that includes more time on my blog!
I don’t even do anything for St. Patrick’s Day, except now, apparently. Now I am sipping delicious stout beer and munching on one of these decadent brownies. Let me tell you, I was expecting them to be good, but these are serious business. The dense brownie batter will remind you of a flourless chocolate cake. The glossy ganache is made with IRISH CREAM, so yes, it tastes like whiskey, cream and chocolate. It’s fabulous.
There also may or may not be a homemade Irish cream recipe coming up on my cocktail newsletter, The Fizz. If you aren’t on it already, get moving! Homemade Irish cream is a cut above. It’s nice and thick, and you can adjust the sweetness and booziness to your liking. And it’s *so* easy – all you need is a bowl and a whisk.
I am rushing this post to the blog because it’s only a few days away from St. Patrick’s Day – and also, it’s Sunday, so you guys can still have time to go shopping and get these babies baking up for the week ahead. Let me know if you try them, or how you generally celebrate St. Pat’s, in the comments!
