I finally got round to actually doing a challenge

Over a year later, I finally decided to start entering a few challenges.  First up is the Belleau Kitchen random recipe challenge.

The July challenge was to count across your books, pick the thirtieth, then turn to page thirty.  It took me ages to gather all my books together and rearrange the bookshelves.  The random book was Rachel Allen's Bake.  The recipe on page 30 is Carrot and Pecan Squares.  I can't find the exact recipe online, but this is very similar, although mine had a lot less icing and no orange.

The cake went down very well at my mum's barbecue yesterday.


  1. how lovely to have a new random recipe entrant and with such a fab looking cake... I do love the classics and I adore this book too, Rachel is such a classy chef. Glad I could help with your book tidy too!... xx

  2. Carrot cake is one of my favourite - welcome to the challenge roundabout. Look forward to seeing you in the future.

  3. This looks lovely - carrot and pecan is a delicious combination :-)
