Carrot Cake Day


It always falls on February 3 every year.



Already in the Middle Ages carrots were used as a sweetener in cakes. Recipes for carrot cake have been appearing in cookbooks since 1827. In the book of tips and tricks from Switzerland dating back to 1892, the oldest recipe for carrot cake is known. Then he got to Britain and his popularity grew up during the Second World War, when all was lacking and the rations.
