National Carrot Cake day 2016

Every mom needs a cupboard full of herbal honeys.  Honey is one of the best mediums for extracting nutritive, balancing, and restorative root herbs.  Amazing and delicious deserts disguise the powerful root medicine in our kitchen.

I'm pretty partial to Phoenix Herb Company because I know their suppliers are quality.  Kansas City is lucky to have this valuable resource for home based herbal practices.

There's nothing to it.  Buy the root powders and stir in 1/2 powders 1/2 honey.  This becomes the "wet ingredients" in just about any recipe you can think of from Carrot Cake to Bananna Bread.  Work the dry ingredients the same as in any recipe, with less sugar/brown sugar than is called for because of the honey.  If ginger is used as one of the root herbs, you will have to add a bit more flour to the recipe because the honey thins out a lot when it extracts the "hot" ginger constituents.

I put too much of the batter into one 9" round cake pan and it boiled all over the oven, almost caught fire, and otherwise created a pseudo catastrophe in my kitchen today, but somehow it still came out perfect.  I sliced the crispy burnt bubbley top off of the cake while still in the pan, and turned the cake upside down.  Voila, perfection.

I decided to ice both the cake, and the....what do I call this crispy carrot gingerbread flat thing?  Well, the easiest way I know to make homemade icing is to blend powdered sugar, butter, beets, lemon juice, and a dash of apple cider vinegar in the quisinart.

I iced the crispy carrot ginger snap cookies (cut into pie wedges), and the somehow perfect Carrot Cake.  Mmmmhhh  Roots!!!
