One of the more sought after cake mixes from the Maya product line is the Maya Thinkheart Whole Wheat Carrot Cake Mix. It is probably the most convenient and best-tasting way to make Carrot Cake in the comfort of your own home.
Unlike the fairly new Red Velvet Cake, recipes for Carrot Cake date back as the early 19th century and can be found in French and Swiss cookbooks of that period. It is said to be one of the most popular cakes in Switzerland, particularly for children’s parties. Carrot Cake also became a staple in Great Britain due to rationing during Wold War II.
The addition of carrots in the batter makes Carrot Cake even healthier and adds nutritional value. Maya took it a notch further by using whole wheat in the mix to derive the benefits from this grain and help reduce the risk of certain diseases.
