No one really knows where the carrot cake came from, but it’s got carrot in so it must be healthy right? This carrot cake baked porridge is so good and the cashew frosting on top adds the perfect amount of sweetness. If you don’t have time to make the cashew frosting then add some peanut butter and you are good to go.
The texture of baked porridge is significantly different to normal porridge you would cook on the hob or in the microwave. The texture is fluffy and much more cake like which we absolutely love as it makes you feel like you are eating cake for breakfast and who doesn’t want cake for breakfast?
