Carob Cake

This is one our favorite deserts. I am not sure where the recipe originated from — my mother actually taught me how to make it (she used cocoa powder instead of carob), but it is a hit at every potluck or dinner with friends that we have taken it to. If you don’t cover the cake it will form a delicious crunchy top that require no icing to enhance the confection.
