Eleanor found a carrot cake American. As you know, I am a fan of the cakes. Randomly review, The Express Styles, I find a carrot cake. Yes a cake carrot, but version of love sugar. Skeptical, I try the shot. We'll see when it's finished. This was an amazing surprise. A delight exceptional. Nice taste of cheese with the vanilla kind cream cheese, more carrot we feel not at all, apart from its sweetness. This is a recipe Rose Carrarini " The cakes Mom under American influence ". I will not say it was giant out of the oven. As for my trip to the States last year, nothing is small home. We try at least once ... and for my part, I will return happily. For me it's a bit of my grandfather who lived in the United States.
I see that my ticket is also long ... .it America.
