When Ester of The Lilac Kitchen posed this month’s Daring Baker’s Challenge my gears started rolling. The challenge was actually to use a traditional ingredient: suet, raw fat from around the loin and kidneys of beef. Thank goodness she allowed suet substitutes.
Carrot cake is one of my favorites. Not only does it taste great, but it has some nutrition from the carrots. More importantly, I’ve never been able to muck it up. So carrot cake it was.
A Little About Puddings…
Puddings can be steamed in the oven or on the stove top. I used my CrockPot. I didn’t want to my oven going for hours and was too busy to fuss over pots on the stove.
My pudding turned out to be more of a cake. I think. I’ve never had a traditional, steamed English pudding so I’m just guessing.
Do you have a favorite CrockPot dessert?
