Carrot & Yogurt Loaf Cake

Posted on

If you are in the market for a tasty yet healthy cake to take to a party or just to enjoy yourself, this just might be the cake for you. It is quite tasty and if you reduce the sugar you won’t even be able to tell the difference! I made this cake for a Sunday Dinner Friends Get Together. Anyone else love Sunday dinners with friends or family? It is a nice way to prep for the week ahead and almost feels like another weekend night of having fun! Although, the wine flowing is in moderation! Anyway, I think this cake turned out well…guys?
