I made this cake just before I got unwell. I had been wanting to eat cake for a while, but not a cake that was too indulgent.
So I had decided on carrot cake when I saw two carrots languishing in my veg basket. I got to work in the kitchen, grating the carrot.
The idea of turmeric was really an afterthought, but I am glad I added it as it gave the cake a yellow tinge!
I guess I could have made it sweeter with butter icing on top, but I just wanted a simple cake, and a slice of this satisfied that want.
