The advantages of being up before the sunrise are endless really…the beautiful sunrise almost makes leaving my cozy warm bed and sleepy stupor worth it, but what really seals the deal is having the extra time to whip up a moist cake for breakfast…

Complete with a little cream cheese topping, breakfast doesn’t get much better!! Fear not, sleepy heads, this cake is just as amazing made ahead of time and warmed up in the oven for a few minutes. Also good for morning tea, or afternoon tea, or dessert, Maybe even dinner.

Very Moist Carrot Cake with a hint of Banana Recipe:

3 medium carrots shredded and set aside

1 1/2 Cups flour(I used spelt and brown rice but would work with other flours)

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cinnamen

(2TBS chia seed, 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, 1 TBS flax all optional but highly suggested…walnuts would be pretty fricken sweet too but i didnt have any)

3/4 C veg oil

3 eggs lightly beaten

1/2 C honey

1 large banana mashed

1 tsp vanilla

Mix the dry ingredients together. Mix the wet ingredients together. Combine ’em and add the carrot, fold together till combined.  Bake for almost an hour 180. Bam

Amazing on it’s own or with a layer of plain softend cream cheese or even with some cream cheese icing if you want to make it a bit of a naughty breakfast treat.
