It was my mum’s birthday recently and she came around for her dinner a day early – on the Sunday. Cast your mind back to last year and you may remember that it’s a tradition that I make mum a carrot cake for her birthday every year. It’s her favourite dessert, and I try and make it a bit different every year. Last year’s was a loaf cake.
This year, I toyed with a few ideas, carrot cake bars, cupcakes, but I settled on a carrot cake swiss roll. I had never made a swiss roll before and really wanted to give one a go.
I found a recipe over at Crazy for Crust. It looked daunting at first but it was much, much easier than I anticipated.
