I had this recipe tucked away in my “to try” pile for quite a while. I started going through them last week to see if I should cut that pile down a bit. But decided this recipe was worth a try. I made it this morning as my parents were here and my aunt Marilyn was going to be over. I think it was a bit dry, but I’m wondering if I should have packed the carrots in more when I measured them. I’ll try that next time, else maybe add a bit of applesauce or more oil… or even blueberries instead of the raisins.
Otherwise the flavor was excellent and it was really easy. Plus makes the perfect amount for a small group of people.
