    ReeLani's Note:

    Spicy, soft and cakey treats. I thought it'd be fun to try carrots instead of pumpkin in a recipe and see how it turned out. Hope you enjoy them.

      This is absolutely fab! I love carrots any way they are fixed and these were fixed to a T. Great recipe to serve at luncheon for light dessert.

      More like a spicy nut cake, familiar in some of the Caribbean Islands. Full of flavour this is a nice moist treat with a cup of tea. A very easy recipe to whip up. When caramel candies cool, they tend to harden up to their original consistency, making it very difficult, if not impossible to cut. I would not use them for cake topping. Without compromising the intent of this recipe, I used caramel chips for the topping; melting chips in a double boiler, mixed with 1 tbsp soya/canola margarine. The topping, in its melted smooth, creamy state spread very easily. (the caramel colour is not very appealing, however). When cooled, the topping was easily cut. It was easy to cut the cake into "bars"; these "Carrot Patch Bars" will be a nice addition to our treat table, during the coffee hour after church service, on Sunday. I will keep this recipe in my collection and use it again for bake sales, church coffee hour, etc. Thankyou for your contribution.
