Quick like a rabbit

We had a family dinner to attend at Mark's mother's place, and we were responsible for the deserts.

I made a carrot cake, a corn cake shaped like a bunny and a coconut cream pie.  

I had been wanting to try out the bunny mold for a long time. 
Rolf brought it back from Germany and it was sort of intimidating.  It bakes  upright on this sort of elaborate frame.   It WORKED!  it was very exciting.

I left the carrot cake unfrosted, but put some little frosting carrots all around the top.  It looked super when I first did it, but the cake wasn't cooled all the way, so some of the carrots ran, making it looks sort of  fun housish.

I forced Freyja to wear this very sweet jacket she inexplicably hates, and could only be comforted if I included her picture in this post.  She is all about self promotion, and deal brokering.

Simple vegan carrot cake:
2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 oil
1 teaspoon soda
3/4 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup shredded apple
1/4 rice milk
1/2 cinnamon
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup raisins

bake at 350 for almost an hour.

makes a 9x9 square or a small babka mold.


  1. Mine is very skilled in the deal brokering aspect as well.


  2. makes you wonder where it comes from... hmmmm
