A loaf packed with carrots, coconut and pineapple
Usually, when a recipe calls for sifting, I just say “pffft – I’m not doing it.” I mean – that’s an extra step, something else to clean, and with all that extra work, will it really be worth it?
Well, believe it not, I sifted something for the first time this past week. Yea, it was kinda time consuming, and yes, I had something else to wash, but it felt kinda gratifying. Like, man, you’re a legit baker. But to be honest, I couldn’t really tell a difference.
Either way, I think I’ll sift as needed from now on. It’s nice to know I have the skill, but I’ll reserve if it for cocoa powder, powdered sugar, and baking soda (I always get small bits of it in my treats without sifting!)
With Holy Week upon us, I imagine there could be lots of sifting opportunities – like Hot Cross Buns, Bunny Bread, Coconut Cake – the list goes on and on (there’s so little time!) One item you should definitely include is this Carrot Cake Loaf! It’s packed with all the traditional flavors like coconut, pineapple, pecans and it’s topped with a sweet orange glaze. This would be the perfect easy treat to include in your Easter festivities.
