In the Kitchen with Brian and Lisa: Carrot cake

by | Apr 21, 2011

WRAL reporter Brian Shrader and our own Lisa Prince feature seasonal recipes in their Got to Be Good Cookin’ segment using ingredients grown and available right here in North Carolina.

In this segment, Brian and Lisa prepare an incredible carrot cake recipe just in time for your Easter dinner. Nicole Miller took first place for the dessert at the N.C. Egg Association’s cooking competition during the 2010 N.C. State Fair. Lisa suggests covering the cake with crushed N.C. pecans after icing it to add an extra layer of flavor.

You can find ingredients for this recipe and other recipes for your Easter dinner at local farmers markets and roadside stands. To search for a location near you, go to
