    And the Cake is in the Oven

    Yep. It's 11:30 the night before Dory's first real birthday party. Sure she has had others, but she will hopefully have a few friends at this one, even if they just drop in. This is her actual first birthday cake... and I really hope that I don't screw it up. Who knew there were 3 zillion different recipes for Carrot Cake? I had no clue, as this is my first. That said, in true Jenny style, I had to tinker wih it... could no for the life of me stick to just one recipe! I instead followed 3. Yes, that's right... 3.
    I now have NO CLUE how long it should be in there... I guess I will just check it obsesively.

    The Jenny version is as follows:
    1.5c Og All-Purpose Unbleached Flour
    1c Og Whole Wheat Flour
    1.25tsp Og Cinnamin
    1.25tsp Og Baking Powder
    1tsp Baking Soda
    .5 tsp Sea Salt
    1c Og Cane Sugar
    .5c Dark Brown Muscadavo
    4 Og Free Range Amish Farmer Eggs
    .75# Og Carrots, finely grated
    1c Og Chopped & Toasted Pecans
    1c Og Raisens
    1c Og Unrefined Coconut Oil
    .66c Og Applesauce
    2tsp Og Pure Burbon Vanilla (Neilson-Massey Madagascar)

    All mixed up and baking right now. The batter tasted good.... I sure hope the cake does. Or I will still be up at 4am making the next one.

    UPDATE, 12:36am: YUM.
