Camu Camu (vitamin C) Cake - similar to a carrot cake

Camu Camu (Vitamin C) Cake

Loaded with Camu Camu, (Vitamin C) this cake is surprisingly tasty and actually has no carrots in it. It has the same texture and taste and uses Camu Camu (vitamin C) instead. I prefer it with a simple lemon icing but i've given a cream cheese icing too. This cake offers your immune system a super vitamin c boost.
