Healthy, because

Even smarter

The beta-carotene from the carrots not only brings a beautiful colour to the carrot chocolate cake, but also gives us a fresh skin tint. The cake also convinces with antioxidants from the dark chocolate coating, which protect our cells from free radicals and keep us young.

You can also do without saffron, but then the chocolate carrot cake will not turn quite as yellow. Alternatively, you can also use a little turmeric powder for colouring. Dissolve this in the milk as well.
