smpx 17: carrot cake

We saw this post on Slashfood last week and knew we had to try carrot cake pancakes. The recipe is from Joy the Baker and we followed it exactly.

Grating carrots took forever, but it was worth it. The cream cheese frosting was perfect, too. Check out their picture, it's much prettier than ours (which was taken on my cell phone).

**** 1/2
We give carrot cake pancakes 4.5/5 stars. Next week: oreo?

These look lovely! You're right- the carrots are kind of a pain in the butt to grate! Oreo pancakes!?!? Oh My God! Yes!!

These look very tasty and healthy. I think I might cheat and use my food processor to shred the carrots.

i think we're saving oreo for SMPX19. something else came up that we need to try RIGHT AWAY.

i never even thought about using the food processor for the carrots! that would have been a lot easier.
