Today’s Recipe – Carrot Cake with Maple Glaze

Today’s Recipe – Carrot Cake with Maple Glaze (

[Salubrious RD]  Back in the Salubrious RD archives, I have my favorite recipe for carrot cake. These were the days before I knew how to use light for food photography and certainly before I knew how to edit. The pictures were dark and the carrot cake definitely didn’t look as delicious as it tasted. It’s all about the picture.

Flash forward to today, or this weekend, rather, when I saw a carrot cake being made on a cooking show, it just reminded me of the recipe I posted over 3 years ago. I knew I had to make it again, but on a smaller scale.

This recipe is a favorite of mine. It’s similar to the one my mom gave me so long ago. It was one of those recipes that she cut out of a magazine, or a newspaper, taped it to a blank white sheet of paper and put it in a binder. The binder was light blue and was filled with recipes. I lost that binder many years ago, probably in a move, unfortunately. I was so sad when I looked for it and could not find it. It was right then, that I tried to recreate the recipe from memory.

This is about as close as I could come. I remember that it was filled with freshly shredded carrots, crushed pineapple, and raisins. It also called for a cream cheese frosting, which I still make occasionally, but most days I opt for a lighter version with the glaze.
