National Carrot Cake Day

It’s National Carrot Cake Day! Carrot Cake has been around since the Middle Ages. At that time, sugar and other sweeteners were rare and very expensive, so people used sweet vegetables to flavor their puddings.

This technique became obsolete for several hundred years, but resurfaced in the 20th century. During World War II, the British government rationed many luxury foods and household staples including sugar. To appease the nation’s sweet tooth, the Ministry of Food promoted recipes for carrot puddings, carrot-filled pies, and carrot cakes. Today, many families in the UK still serve carrot cake on Christmas Day!

Carrot cake is much healthier than many other baked goods. A traditional recipe calls for carrots, raisins, walnuts, and brown sugar (instead of refined white sugar). Enjoy a slice from your local bakery in honor of National Carrot Cake Day!

    I'm not crazy about it but will eat it with a cream cheese frosting. Today is also national boy scout day.
