Brazilian Carrot Cake

Brazilian Carrot Cake
Introduction: I have not made a carrot cake before, this is my first tryout. I was attracted by the simplicity of this video recipe that inspired me to make it. I changed the sugar quantity from then original recipe since I do not like my cakes too sweet. This recipe brings a twist to the traditional carrot cake, because it is made with chocolate glaze. This is what it looks like, and needless to say that it tastes as good as it looks.
