Beth here: I am excited to introduce to you author Hillary Manton Lodge. Hillary has written a delightful and foody-fun series of books with Waterbrook Multnomah culminating with this third and final book, Together at the Table. Isn’t the cover lovely? I want to sit down and be part of whatever delicious meal and fun conversation is coming next. Hillary has put together a fun blog post for us with a special recipe that’s the the perfect treat for this coming-into-summer season. I just might be breaking out my cake pans when the Scavenger Hunt party is over because my husband loves carrot cake! Gluten free for me, of course. 😉 

 

About the book: 

Three months ago, Juliette D’Alisa’s world changed. 26067460

In a bittersweet series of events, her mother’s health took a turn for the worse. Juliette and her brother opened their restaurant together to rave reviews, but her romance with Memphis immunologist Neil McLaren ended in anger and tears.

As autumn sweeps into the Pacific Northwest, Juliette feels that she’s finally on the cusp of equilibrium. The restaurant continues to thrive, and her family is closer than ever. She and sous-chef Adrien are seeing each other, both in and out of the kitchen. Just when she thinks her world might stop spinning, a trip to the waterfront lands a familiar face into her path.

Rather than dwell on her personal life, Juliette throws herself into work and research. After reading her grandmother’s letters from war-torn Paris, she still wants to know the full story –  and she’ll travel across countries and oceans to find it.

But even Juliette can’t outrun the man who stole her heart. As she finally uncovers the truth about her family history, what will it mean for her own chances at lasting love?

IMG_20160404_083621 Let’s enjoy a slice of Hillary’s special cake now, shall we? 

With spring upon us, I’ve wanted to post a carrot cake recipe for some time. Life got in the way, as it does, but I was excited to get my hands onto this project when the time came.

Reader, it was bad. The first batch stuck to the pans, creating a mess of crumbs that, well, I’m still nibbling on. The oven – despite the dial thinking it was the right temperature – was super hot, the cakes baking in a third of the time. Oh, and I was playing with a different frosting, and it split badly.

So I went out to the grocery store, bought more pineapple and oil, and set to work again. This time I lined the tins, which worked like a dream. I set the oven a hundred degrees lower, but you know what? It was still crazy hot. I have an oven thermometer coming to me, but I’ve used ovens long enough to know what 350 is supposed to feel like, and it wasn’t that.

I experimented with turning the oven off and on, cracking the door open – well, let’s just say that your cakes will likely rise better than mine. But, even dense, they are delicious! Sweet and tangy from the pineapple, topped with a cream cheese frosting made richer with sour cream..

For the Cake:

1 cup all-purpose flour                                            4 eggs

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour                                 ¾ cup white sugar

2 tsps cinnamon                                                    ½ cup dark brown sugar

½ tsp nutmeg                                                         1 cup canola oil

¾ tsp ground ginger                                                3 cups carrots, peeled and grated

1 tsp sea salt                                                          8 oz fresh pineapple

2 tsps baking powder                                               ½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut, toasted

1 ½ tsps baking so                                                  ½ cup chopped pecans, toasted

For the frosting: IMG_20160404_083943

½ cup butter, at room temperature

12 oz cream cheese, at room temperature

8 oz sour cream, at room temperature

¾ powdered sugar, 1 cup if you like things sweeter.

1 tsp vanilla or vanilla bean paste

  1. Line three 9-inch cake tins with parchment paper. The easiest way to do this is to trace the bottom of the cake tin with pencil onto the paper, cut one, and use that one as a template for the next two. Butter and flour the paper, tapping out the excess flour. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  1. Sift the flours, spices, salt, and rising agents together in a medium-sized bowl.
  1. In a stand mixer, beat the eggs together until they’re pale and frothy. Add the sugar, and beat for another two minutes. With the mixer running, add the canola oil, followed by the carrots and pineapple.
  1. Divide the batter into the three cake tins. If you’re interested in being exact, weigh the cake tins with a kitchen scale and adjust the amounts until they’re equal (this is easier to do with grams than in ounces). Bake the cakes for 35-40 minutes, or until browned and the sides are pulling away.
  1. IMG_20160404_084733 While the cake bakes, you can make the frosting. Beat the butter, cream cheese, sour cream, and vanilla together. With the mixer on slow, add the powdered sugar and beat until smooth and yummy.
  1. Allow to cool on wire racks until the cakes are completely cool to touch. Once cooled, invert each cake onto a separate plate.
  1. To frost, place the first layer bottom-side-up onto your serving plate or cake plate. Spoon a generous amount of frosting onto the first layer, and spread it evenly. Repeat with the second layer, placing a thicker layer of frosting onto the topmost layer.
  1. Sprinkle the toasted coconut and pecans over the top. I chose stripes, but you’re welcome to use whatever design you enjoy! Enjoy with friends – this cake makes about 8 servings.

Fun tip: If you’re like me and you really love toasted coconut, sprinkle extra coconut on top, after frosting each layer.

    I live in Arkansas, and my favorite dessert would be difficult to say. One, I love fresh fruit and cantaloupe, strawberries and watermelon are my favorites. But then again, I love a home made strawberry pie, white chocolate with strawberries pie. It was one of the things my mother always made for her mother on her birthday, which was around Mother’s Day, so we always have to have that then. Hoping to win the newest book, but again, will download one of your books soon. If you have a preference as to which one I should start with, please be sure to let me know.

    My favorite summer dessert is ice cream, and watermelon when I am feeling a little bit more healthy. 😀

    My favorite summer dessert would be strawberry shortcake, even though it doesn’t have any chocolate in it!

    Honestly, I really don’t like to cook/bake/make food, so my favorite summer recipe is anything someone else makes. =) [My poor husband…] However, if I could pick what I’d like my friends to make, it would be homemade ice cream!

    Thanks for participating in the hunt! I have thoroughly enjoyed reading several of your books, especially Can’t Buy Me Love. Fantastic! Now, I’m really looking forward to reading this one. I just wish you were able to write faster! 🙂 My favorite summertime dessert is probably Frozen Lemonade Pie. It tastes great and is incredibly easy to make…as long as you don’t dump it upside down in the driveway on your way to a cookout. 🙂

    My favorite summer dessert would have to be my daddy’s homemade Lemon Slice ice cream. Unfortunately, he is no longer around to make it, but I have the recipe and have made it a couple of times.

    Oh my! I love all desserts. I guess for summer would be ice cream with all the fun toppings. I’ll eat ice cream every day if I could. I am so interested in this book because I am a Memphian born and raised!

    The cake looks delicious. Too bad for me, doctor says to cut down on sweets and carbs. I do have a favorite summertime dessert and it’s fresh strawberry pie with fresh whipped cream.

    Hello! Looks like I have already subscribed. I love Cool and Easy pie. It is basically jello and coolwhip in a graham cracker crust. It is so cool, light and fluffy and therefore perfect for summer. 🙂 Thank you for doing this scavenger hunt! God bless!
