Links at Home – Carrot Cake

This is the start to a series of recipes from Links House, allowing you to experience the delights of our kitchens and bars, in the comfort of your own home!

We are all starting to rummage through our cupboards and larders to find things we can use up and we begin to find items that have been sat there for years.

We are providing the recipe to a delicious little treat, that allows you to use up some of those leftover fruits, vegetables and spices in your cupboard that are rarely brought to light!
