And are you thinking dessert? This recipe looks mighty lucious to me! I think the addition of the tea and the carrot will make it mighty yummy. It is from the blog Ilana-Davita.
3 large eggs (or 2 large eggs plus 2 egg whites)
1/2 cup canola oil1 cup honey
1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
2 tsp pure vanilla extract or brandy
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 cup cold tea (green tea is a great choice)
1/4 cup orange juice (preferably fresh)
2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and grated (about 1 cup grated)
1 medium carrot, grated (about 1/2 cup grated)
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 12-cup fluted tube pan with cooking spray.
2. In a food processor fitted with the steel blade, process the eggs, oil, honey, brown sugar, and vanilla extract for 2 to 3 minutes or until smooth and creamy. Don’t insert the pusher into the feed tube while processing.
3. Add the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt to the processor bowl. Then add the tea and orange juice and process with several on/off pulses, just until combined. Add the grated apples and carrot and process with several quick on/off pulses, until combined.
4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake for 65 to 70 minutes or until a cake tester or toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes before inverting the pan and unmolding the cake onto a serving plate.
