Mini Carrot Coconut Cakes

Pin It

Carrots and coconut makes a great combination. Never used them together before but when I saw this recipe , I was eager to give it a try. I used muffin pan & small cake pans as she mentioned in the recipe. A beautiful aroma filled my kitchen, while they were in the oven. They are good plain, but even better with the chocolate. If you are a coconut lover, like me, you'll love these :)
