Jailhouse Carrot Cake

rikers-carrot-cake-150.jpgThe New York Times visits the bakery at New York City prison Rikers Island, which churns out whole wheat bread and a carrot cake which is famous within the New York correctional system. Staffed by ex-baker convicts, the bakery produces 11,500 loaves of bread daily, and 2,500 cakes per year. They include the recipe for the cake, although you might want to scale it down — it produces 25 cakes per batch. [NYT via Eater National]
