Leek, Carrot and Feta Savoury Carrot Cake – a delicious alternative to a traditional sweet carrot cake. Enjoy it as a delicious addition to an Easter lunch gathering. It will also make a tasty, quick lunch served with a side salad. And for those balmy summer days, it’s super to take on a picnic. You can also serve cubed as finger food at a party.»
