National Carrot Cake Day is observed annually on February 3rd.  It gives us a chance to have our cake and eat our veggies, too!

Carrot cake closely resembles a quick bread from its preparation to its final consistency. Quick breads mix the wet and dry ingredients separately before combining, and the final product is coarser than a traditional cake.

Carrots with their natural sweetness may have been selected as a substitute in the Middle Ages when sugar was hard to find or expensive. Carrot cake most likely developed from a carrot pudding which could be savory or sweet.

Carrot cakes may also include spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg, raisins or nuts.
