Spiced Parsnip Cake

Spiced Parsnip Cake

If you like carrot cake or spice cake I think you’ll really like this cake recipe. Fresh grated parsnips are the ingredient that makes the cake moist. You can serve it plain, dusted with powdered sugar or frosted. We made it in class the other night.

It is also a very easy cake to make. You don’t need a mixer. Great for when you don’t have a lot of time to bake.
