Default At Rikers, This Cake Is Renowned



Really interesting article about Rikers Island Prison bakery which
turns out 11,500 loaves of whole wheat bread a day.

The carrot cake baked by inmates at Rikers Island is good enough that
seconds are often requested, and correction officers ask for their
fair share

So for one loaf that's a lb of flour, a lb of sugar, a lb of carrotts, a
lot of eggs, a pint of vegetable oil....

I don't think I will be making that.

Way too much soda in the home recipe. Don't use 1/4 cup, use 1
Tbs instead. Even that may be too much. Read all the comments
in the newspaper review before making this recipe.
