How to bake good­ness into clas­sic fall favourites

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

(NC)— Noth­ing says fall more than the fresh aroma of some of the sea­son’s most pop­u­lar baked goods. From the clas­sic car­rot cake to the all-time fam­ily favourite – choco­late chip cook­ies – there is no short­age of oc­ca­sions to en­joy these tried and true recipes. That’s why the bak­ing ex­perts at Robin Hood are cel­e­brat­ing the start of the fall bak­ing sea­son with an up­dated se­lec­tion of clas­sic fall favourites. The best part? Th­ese fall recipes are not only de­li­cious, they in­clude some added good­ness. De­li­ciously moist and sim­ple Car­rot Cake – What makes car­rot cake such a crowd pleaser is its soft, dense tex­ture and dis­tinct flavour cre­ated by the aro­matic mix­ture of cin­na­mon and sugar. With three cups of car­rots in­cluded in the recipe and 2 grams of fi­bre per serv­ing - it’s the per­fect cake for any fam­ily oc­ca­sion.
