How To Make a Milkfree Carrot Cake
Lactose Intolerant ?
This is a remedy for those people who suffer from that malady! It is a pleasant tasting and a very popular line for me. Had to make 9 of these for various friends etc., all to be ready on Christmas Eve, it took some doing I can tell you as my oven is small and could only bake a cake at a time. Try it and watch as the cake disapears.
Actually make 2, but do not let them see the other!
