Saturday Night Fun

Just had a great evening with Jonathan and Brienna over.
I made carrot cake and Andreas made chips/crisps and dip and first we watched X-factor (Joe was by far the best tonight) and then we played Wii. A bit of Mariokart to warm up and then the new Mario Bros for Wii for about 4 hours I think. So much fun!!!

Now it's bed time because tomorrow I have to study REAL HARD for my test on Monday in accounting. A lot of exercises I need to finish to be sure that I have some form of understanding of what is going on.

Recipe for the carrot cake:
oven to 175 degrees
3 carrots
½ dl almonds
½ dl hazelnut
2 egg
1 dl sugar
1 dl brown sugar
2 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cardamom
½ teaspoon bicarbonate
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 dl flour
100g butter

Grate the carrots and chop the nuts to small pieces put in a bowl. Add egg and sugar, mix well then pour in melted butter. Mix the spices and flour. Add everything together.
Pour into a baking tin, 1½ litre with removable bottom, that is greased and breaded.
Put into the lower part of the oven for 40-45 min.
Take out and let it cool off before removing the baking tin.

250g Creme cheese /Philadelphia
1 dl icing sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice

Mix together and spread over the cake.
It's nice to drizzle some white chocolate flakes or almond flakes for decoration.

Now I'm off to bed. Good night!
