Brazilian carrot cake

Brazilian Carrot Cake, know as Bolo de Cenoura, is one of my favorite desserts and one of the most popular and traditional in Brazilian dessert making. It is unlike any regular carrot cake you have seen before if you have not tried it and is truly a unique dessert. It is rich in flavor and texture and is perfectly coated with a delicious signature chocolate sauce. Here is a simple and easy way to make this traditional Brazilian carrot cake dessert without all the fuss.

Ingredients for Brazilian carrot cake:

For the carrot cake:
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 carrots finely chopped and minced

1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
For the Sauce:
1 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoons cocoa powder or chocolate of your choice.
1 cup sugar
4 tablespoons milk
Directions for the Brazilian carrot cake:
1) Beat the chopped carrots with the eggs and oil in a machine beater, add the sugar and continue beating for about 5 minutes.
2) Once blended to a smooth consistency place the remaining ingredients mixing everything except the baking powder in a bowl.
3) Mix in the yeast with a spoon slowly.
4) Pour into a greased baking mold and bake in the oven at 355 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes.
