Top a showstopping crown of Mascarpone Frosting Apple Pecan Carrot Cake ~ with Apple Cider Caramel Sauce and salty-sweet Spiced Pecans. Caramel sauce, rather than frosting, sandwiches together the moist cake layers.
Recipe: Whole-Wheat Carrot Applesauce Muffins - 100 Days of Real Food. Not too sweet and very tasty. I didn't have honey so I used real maple syrup. I doubled the recipe and got 18 good size muffins. Delish and simple to make.
