Cookie-carrot-cake

Cookie Carrot Cake

Warm carrot cake with a hint of spice and a cup of tea, can it get any better than that? Yes, it can! My version uses crushed coconut cookies to give it that lovely hint of coconut and a different depth of flavour to the ordinary carrot cake. If you are not a fan of cookies, substitute with chopped walnuts for a classic carrot cake recipe.
