Spelt, Carrot and Parsnip Cake (Recipe)

Most baked goods (like cookies) taste best right out of the oven. Carrot cake, however, always seems to get better over a few days. I wanted to try my hands at making a healthy cake (or is it more of a bread?) that I could eat either for breakfast or as a mid-day energy snack. […]
