You all know much I love to have something sweet for the weekend. Nargisse’s incredible book “Casablanca” came in time for the weekend. This Ras el hanout carrot cake is just incredible. When I saw it I knew I had to make it right away. Because let’s be real My kids are rabbits and I always have carrots around. This cake is So moist and I love its Moroccan twist. It uses a spice called Ras el hanout in Arabic it translates “top of the shop” which indicates that the spices used for the blend are the finest in the hanout’s shop. And you better believe sometimes this spice could include up to 60 different ingredients. It’s both wonderful in sweet and savory dishes. I am So happy because I brought some home with me from Palestine but it’s also widely available and Nargisse @mymoroccanfood has her own recipe in the book. Have a Sweet sweet Weekend friends. And Nargisse your cookbook rocks. #carrotcake#raselhanout#Morocco
R O A S T E D G R E E N S with ras-el-hanout, English grain and Westcombe ricotta. Hasselback squash roasted in butter, out of shot. The two of these together would make an excellent feast and any leftovers a cracking lunch.
