    The flavour was pretty carrot muffin like, while the texture was like a very dense and dry carrot cake. I used all the optional ingredients and orange sweet potatoes. For the sugar I used raw cane sugar and I used my own gluten free flour mixture. I did a little research and found this is usually eaten with salt fish so I sprinkled them with a good amount of sea salt. Because they were dry I felt they needed some fat, butter would have been good but we are dairy free. After adding a little dripping of canola oil and the salt I would rate them up from 2 stars to 3. I did not even try to serve them to DH. This is not something I would make again. Photo posted. Made for ZWT5 For Cooks With Dirty Faces.
