Carrot Cake Mini Bundt #BundtBakers


Here we are in June with the monthly post for the baking group called Bundt Bakers. #BundtBakers is a group of Bundt loving bakers who get together once a month to bake Bundts with a common ingredient or theme. 

You can see all our of lovely Bundts by following our Pinterest board. We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about BundtBakers, can be found on our home page. This month, we're sharing Dad's favorite bundts in preparation for this weekend's Fathers' Day celebration. Thanks to Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm for hosting.


Carrot Cake Mini Bundt

Jake couldn't decide on a favorite cake. So I made my favorite cake. I figured: I made him a dad all those years ago. That counted, right?

Ingredients makes four mini bundts
  • 2-1/2 cups flour 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 3 cups shredded carrots
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2cup organic granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup organic dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used whole milk)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Also needed: mini bundt pans; butter for greasing the pans; carrot ribbons for garnish; powdered sugar for dusting
Procedure

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter mini bundt pans and set aside. 

Place shredded carrots, eggs, oil, sugars, milk, vanilla, and spices in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Use a hand blender to beat into a smooth batter. Add in the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until ingredients are just moistened. 

Portion batter into prepared pans. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes - until the bundts are well-risen and a tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean. 

Remove cakes to a wire rack and let cool slightly. Dust with powdered sugar and garnish with carrot ribbons. 

That's a wrap for Dad's favorite bundts. We'll be back next month with Boozy Bundts. Oh, that sounds like fun!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
