Weirdly, when I first came across this recipe I was attracted to the coconut milk, but when I thought about the combination of tastes I wasn't sure, but it really did work well.

Well I didn’t get to make the carrot cake.My hand mixer got clogged up with icing sugar last week and wouldn’t work so I bought a new one that cost me twice as much as I usually spend.It doesn’t work at all so I’m taking it back tomorrow.So I’ve linked up this old post and I’ll try the carrot cake again tomorrow.

I’m attracted to any recipe with coconut milk too! Love coconut. I hadn’t heard of black eyed beans until I went to wholefoods the other week. What do they taste like?

This is the first time I’ve joined in with SCS so I hope my recipe is suitable. X

To be honest, they don’t have a distinct flavour taste like beans really. Thanks for joining in and the recipe is perfect!
