The Ever Fudgy Chocolate Carrot Cake w/ Honey Cream Cheese Frosting

One excuse to eat chocolate cakes is to add carrots!  My daughters love carrots so everytime I cook something for them, I would always make sure as much as it can possibly done, to add carrots to it.  Carrots.  I am happy that they can get lots of nutrients from eating the carrots.

I was reading an article last night about carrots and I've realized that eating them has so many benefits.  If you are interested in reading this just go to http://carrotmuseum.co.uk/nutrition2.html

Anyways, you can bake this yummy cake anytime you want and get adventurous with your toppings.  You can even get your little ones to help you with it.  Just that I did not ask my girls to help me out or we won't be able to finish decorating because the girls will feast on it.

1 c plain flour
1/2 c cocoa powder (cadbury)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 c granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c canola or vegetable oil
1 1/2 c grated carrots
1 c chocolate chips

Sift the dry ingredients in a bowl (except sugar).  Mix well and set aside.
Beat eggs until pale.
Add in Sugar and vanilla.
Pour in the oil.
Continue mixing while adding the dry ingredients in batches.  Mix well.
Pour half of the batter into a lightly greased springform pan.
Scatter the chocolate chips on top of the batter.
Cover them with the remaining half of the batter.
Bake for 30 minutes in a 180C preheated oven.
Cool in a rack.
Spread the honey-cream cheese frosting and decorate w/ chocolate chips and/or sprinklers.
