Carrot Cake Pops

Here’s something I never thought I’d say. I am craving fall flavors while still trying to soak in every last day we have left of summer. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t actually want fall to arrive just yet. The change in temperature, shorter days, and all that jazz can stay away forever (as far as I’m concerned).

I just want to have permission to break out the pumpkin, warm spices and drink mulled apple cider. But I am trying to hold off. I’m sure I’ll be changing my tune next week though. When all I want to do is to hold on to summer’s goodness and abundance with both of my hands. For as long as I possibly can.

Still wanted to break out the cinnamon and a couple of other spices. Which is where carrot cake comes into play. I don’t think there’s a rule as to when one can whip up a wonderful carrot cake. It’s a cake I am happy to enjoy all year around and it is my way of getting some of those fall cravings taken care of.

Carrot Cake – yay or nay? It’s been a long debate in our house.

Before I married Adam, I always thought carrots were a vegetable that everyone loved. You know, sort of like corn, peas, broccoli or green beans. Vegetables that are mild in flavor and make a frequent appearance on dinner tables around the country.

Since I love eating most vegetables, it never occurred to me that I could be sharing my life with someone who isn’t a huge fan. Over the years, I have had to get creative with sneaking in vegetables or simply not mentioning that my sweetie was chowing down on turnips and not regular potatoes :).

A method that has served us well so far. Except when it comes to carrots. Apparently carrots have such a strong taste that they can ruin an entire meal. Who knew?

So when I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, that I’d been really wanting to try to bake a carrot cake, you can probably imagine the look I received. There was no convincing that a dessert could include vegetables, much less carrots.

But with Easter getting closer and closer, I could finally stand it no longer and set out to create a carrot cake that would please a self-proclaimed vegetable-avoider. [Read more…]
