CARROT CAKE MINIS ๐Ÿ’ฎ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’ฎ

in #esteem โ€ข 5 years ago (edited)

Hello my Dearest Foodies,

There is quite a story behind this yummy mini cakes recipe. Well, the original plan was to make carrot cake cupcakes, however, it didn't turn it that way, lol. What happened was is that I found very good RECIPE online with spelt flour, but it was white spelt flour (which is actually not healthy) and not a whole grain spelt flour (which is healthy) like I wanted. Nevertheless, I used the whole grain anyway. This may be the reason, why the cup cakes did not rise high enough. Although I was very disappointed about that, the taste is delicious, so I came up with an alternative which made them not only pretty, but even more yummy. I cut them in half and made CARROT CAKE MINIS. Now I ma very happy with the result and I may even make a whole cake. My sister likes them too, which is a very good sign!

And by the way, today is a big day, because my sister arrived from Slovakia. It's been eight years since she was here last time so I am very excited. We have planed lots of activities so I will be quite busy, but I try to keep you posted.

In the meantime, have a wonderful weekend and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY ๐Ÿ’ฎ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’ฎ

These carrot cake minis look carrot cake scrumptious. I love when recipes take a turn for the better in this way. Yay ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. Thatโ€™s awesome to have your sister visiting. You two girls have fun and donโ€™t get into too much trouble out there. You rock Miss Lena!!

You know baking cakes is not my strong suit, so I am happy with they way they turned out, lol. Thank you so much my sweet Pura ๐Ÿ˜ And yes, my sister is here! We are going to New York tomorrow! Just for a few days with the whole family, except the weather really sucks!!!

Iโ€™m sure you two got in just the right amount of trouble in New York! By your pics youโ€™d never tell that cakes was a nemesis :).

Howdy Miss Lena! Wow these look amazing! I see that the cashew cream is used again, that stuff comes in handy doesn't it? I have to try and make some. And these mini cakes look so moist, rich, and tasty!
Oh, I don't know when you'll catch up on my posts but the one I posted today you won't like because Hermann kills an innocent buffalo calf so I just wanted to warn you. You might want to skip that one. It's the post called Hermann Wanders the Southwest Plains.

Howdy Janton! We just returned from New York family trip this morning. I will be posting lots of photos and I will catch up with Hermann soon as possible. I am really curious how is he doing. Even if he kills buffalo. Thanks for the warning, but this story is full of blood shed, that this will not make much difference.

I am glad you like the cake; I wish I could send you a few...............thank you so much for stopping by ๐Ÿ˜Š

Howdy Miss Lena! I hope you guys had a great trip and seeing photos of it will be wonderful!
Thanks so much for touching base with me.

I am happy too...trip was great, although the first day was raining, so it wasn't as good as it wasn't perfect.

Howdy today Miss Lena! sorry this is so late, I didn't work online last night, took Mr.s J to the airport, she's flying back to Ohio to see family.

Howdy Janton! No need to apologize! I am also busy with my family.........today is my daughter's birthday so I made a cake and we are going to celebrate i the park. My sister will be here for one more week, so I don;t think I will be posting anything until she leaves. But don't worry, I will catch up. I hope you are well ๐Ÿ˜Š

Howdy Miss Lena! Thanks so much for thinking of me and letting me know how you're doing, that all sounds wonderful and I hope the weather is cooperating! Yes, I'm doing great, thanks for asking.

Howdy Janton! I am glad you doing well and I am happy to keep you posted. The weather here is not cooperating at all, lol. But tomorrow should be nice again. I keep my fingers crossed ๐Ÿ˜Š
