The popularity of carrot cake revived in United Kingdom because of rationing during the Second world war. It is believed carrot cake originated from carrot pudding eaten by Europeans in the middle ages. Carrot was used as a substitute back then as sugar and sweeteners were expensive. This cake is quick and easy to make, versatility and utterly delicious. It isn’t something we grew up eating. Thanks to this recipe, we fell in love.
