Carrot Cake or When your boss is Bill Cosby

the best carrot cake from the best food blog 5starcookies-enjoy and share
the best carrot cake from the best food blog 5starcookies-enjoy and share

When I laugh with my friends I called him Bill Cosby and by him I I mean “psycho boss”.

You know the type: charming, controlling  freak, narcissists and masters of deception. One of my favorite explanation is the following

 Psychopaths operate from a warped moral code and experience little to no guilt or remorse over telling lies. These bosses are skilled at avoiding accountability and have a Teflon-like capability to deflect blame. They lie, omit information, rephrase the truth, and misrepresent facts. They take credit for ideas that they did not come up with.”

So, how many of you have this kind of experience every day in your life? And how do you deal with it?

For me I like to bake. Baking is the perfect escape from my cold reality. I can even create perfect little creatures in this fictional life and I can make them from anything I like…like ginger

and there you have it…perfect little ginger people with the big heart in the middle. (Reality, eat your heart out)

Ginger People
Ginger People

In this baking escape I like to make cake that my grandmother made for me every week when I was a child.

It is my favorite and the best cake ever – THE CARROT CAKE.

My grandmother used to make different version of her basic recipe. It can be with cheese or with chocolate icing.

There are so much memory connected to this cake and very often when I need something to “hold on” and forget “reality” I make this cake.

And it makes me smile. I love the color, I love the taste and I love to pretend that I am eating the healthiest cake ever made..The Carrot Cake.

And because of memory of my grandmother I like to share this recipe with you.

I know somewhere she is watching over me and saying: “Still your favorite cake…” Yes, grandma still my favorite cake.

Thank you for the  recipe…and the memory.

Now, I need to start making carrot cake. The version that I selected today is carrot cake with cheese frosting.

My grandmother used to make very special frosting with secret ingredients.

Her secret ingredients was apple sauce and strawberries.

You will find yourself making this cake all the time.

Quick and easy, it will become your family favorite!

For this recipe you need the usual ingredients: flour, sugar, oil, eggs, cinnamon, walnuts, cheese, apple sauce, strawberries, vanilla, baking soda and salt.

So, let’s make magic …the Carrot Cake
