Carrot dough is usually prepared with the addition of spices and dried fruits. In this case, turmeric, vanilla sugar, and black raisins. You can add flavor to baked goods with cinnamon, ginger, lemon zest, and orange. In addition to raisins, cherries, dried apricots, pitted dates or prunes are suitable. Nuts and seeds can also be added if you like. Fillers only enrich the taste of carrot baked goods and change its aroma.
