After the decadent holidays, it feels good to start the New Year off with a delicious as well as nutritious dessert. Carrot cake fills that order. The history of the carrot cake dates back to medieval times. American cookbooks had recipes listed for it by the early 1900's and by 1965 it was a popular choice for many occasions.
One of the nice things about the cake is the nutritional value it has along with the moist, tasty flavor. Many recipes include healthy fats, fiber and fewer calories than vanilla or chocolate cakes. Healthy pumpkin, coconut, nuts and raisins are common ingredients.
So this year find a carrot cake recipe and serve it up at your New Year's party. You and your guests will be ringing in 2013 on a healthy note. Checkout a carrot cake recipe with pumpkin at: verybestbaking.com
