Am mancat acum cativa ani buni la o petrecere un carrot cake care mi-a placut mult de tot si planuiam de ceva vreme sa il fac.Mi-am facut putin curaj si am incercat o reteta. Usor de facut si delicioasa!

1 1/2 cup de faina
2 lingurite de praf de copt
varf de cutit de sare
1/4 cup cacao
1 lingurita scortisoara
1/4 lingurita nucsoara
1/2 cup nuci sfaramate
1/2 cup stafide
1/3 cup nuca de cocos
3 oua
3/4 cup zahar brun sau alb
1/2 cup ulei sau margarina topita
125 gr ciocolata de lapte,topita
3 cup morcovi dati pe razatoare

Pune faina,cacaoa,scortisoara,nucsoara intr-un bol.Adauga nucile,stafidele si nuca de cocos.
Intr-un alt bol,amesteca ouale,zaharul si uleiul.Adauga ciocolata topita ,apoi morcovii dati pe razatoare.
Amesteca cu mixtura de faina.Se pune intr-o forma pentru cuptor de 23x32 cm.
Se coace la foc mic (160C) cam 45 minute.Se raceste 15 minute si se scoate din forma.
