Carrot Cake for Dancing Robots

This is a carrot cake recipe for D.R. and I make no claims that it is good or useful.

Ingredient list:
1cup veggie oil
2cups sugar
2tsp vanilla
2tsp baking soda
2cups flour
1tsp salt
1tsp cinnamon
1tsp allspice (chinese 5spice would also be good)
5carrots quartered
1cup shredded carrots
1cup applesauce
1 1/2tsp lemon juice
1cup crushed nuts

Preheat oven to 350
Lay parchment paper on the bottom of a greased 13x8 cake pan.
Cook quartered carrots covered in water. Boil for 15min. Drain, cool, and mash. Set aside.
Beat eggs.
Add oil, sugar, vanilla, and mix.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice.
Add to wet and mix.
Add 2 cups mashed carrots, lemon juice, grated carrots, and applesauce, Mix.
Fold in nuts if desired.
Pour into pan and spread evenly with spatula.
Bake for 40-50 min probably.
Toothpick check at 40 and test every 5min until toothpick comes out clean.

Good luck.
Hope it works.

WriteChallenge #02

Here's the video/song I based my song off of. I put a call out to twitter for a song topic and the internet responded. NSFW possibly.

WriteChallenge #01

I am doing a #writechallenge this month. The rule is write 40,000 words of anything.  I've chosen to do song parodies. This will help me with new vocabulary words and smaller goals. I've done two so far, both based on the realm of mad science. I'm leaning towards doing many steampunk versions of songs. Probably will throw in some Doctor Who while I'm at it. Please to enjoy.

Also random doodles after the jump.
