We made cookies this afternoon and, while I was poking around in our family cookbook for the recipe we needed, I came across this page from an issue of Sassy magazine that I ripped out once upon a time and saved. It’s a recipe for carrot cake in an article about Mike D. making a fifth birthday cake for Sassy magazine which, somehow, about sums up my life at the time. What year was that? The internet tells me it was approximately 1993. So there you have it.
I’ve never used this recipe but finding and reading it amused me so much that I wanted to give it a whirl until I actually, you know, read the recipe and noticed that it’s from a book titled “I Can’t Believe It Has No Sugar” and decided to pass. It’s sweetened entirely with unsweetened fruit juice concentrates! Where would I even buy that? Where could you buy that in the 90′s for crying out loud? Crazy New Yorkers with their health food stores.
