Earlier on I checked out a fellow blogger, “Taste of Colors”. Just loved what they had to offer. You should check them out too as well. Anyway, one of the dishes that caught my eye was the carrot pancakes. Immediately, my ears went up. Already, I had the carrots; so, I went to work. For heaven’s sake, I had to eat lunch….perfect dish! Based on the other ingredients I had, I put my spin and tweaked it a bit. Loved the end result.


  • Carrots (3)
  • Ginger grated (1tsp)
  • Honey (1tbsp)
  • Cinnamon (1/4tsp)
  • Flour (2 tbsp) [wholewheat/all-purpose)
  • Oil (canola/olive)
  • Salt (pinch)
  • Egg (1 Large)
  • Sour cream (1tsp) for binding


1. Shred carrots on box grater along with ginger.

2. Sprinkle with flour, cinnamon, and salt.

3. In a bowl, I combine egg, sour cream, and honey (any other sweetener would be perfect.)

4. Combine all the ingredients and fold.

5. In a hot skillet, drizzle a little oil to cover the bottom of pan.

6. Form batter into preferred sizes. Then drop cakes in pan over low to medium heat and allow to fry for approximately four minutes per side. Aim for a crispy exterior.

7. Drain carrot cakes on paper towel.

8. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt.

Guys, I had a treat. The ginger was just the right balance and provided a beautiful bold, but not overpowering flavor. I was happy and so was my stomach.

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.


  1. I love this simple, crispy, carrot with ginger pancake. I know the ginger gives it a little heat at the back of your throat but the sour cream balances out the taste. Great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will make this.
