The daughter, who introduced herself as Elizabeth, shared with TODAY that her parents have long been divorced, and she only named it the Divorce Carrot Cake because she finds the story about finding the recipe quite charming.
The parents' divorce
According to the Reddit post from user spider_hugs, her parents got divorced more than 20 years ago. Despite such a period, her dad still knew by heart how her mom's recipe of a carrot cake tastes like - thus, the name Divorce Carrot Cake.
The magic of the cake
The daughter who shared the recipe said that her father "sheepishly" asked her to make the cake as his birthday cake. What Elizabeth finds surprising is that his father still wanted to have the same carrot cake.
Elizabeth said, "I find it incredibly touching that my dad remembers something positive about his relationship with my mom."
The New Viral Baking Trend
Since Elizabeth posted the Reddit recipe, many netizens have been trying out the Divorce Carrot Cake in their kitchens.
Some even shared that when they tried the recipe and turned out great, "I made this today! I kept coming back to check this recipe and make sure I didn't omit sugar by accident, because it's not an overly sweet cake, which I LIKE. Not cloying with sugar, which is my preference."
However, some said that they only wanted the cake and not the other part of the name, DIVORCE!
One netizen said, "Oh my. I do love carrot cake but have zero interest in divorce.
In another post, the Twitter shared that she loved the carrot cake and is still married, "I Tried the Divorce Carrot Cake Reddit Is Obsessed With (Yes, I'm Still Married)"
Not a bad juju but a good luck charm
When Elizabeth was interviewed by the TODAY, she explained that the name is not like bad juju. She said, "Some folks seem to think the name implies that the cake will make you get divorced or some other sort of bad juju from naming it as such." Elizabeth believes that it is the exact opposite.
The daughter who posted the recipe said that she made this cake for him when she was dating her boyfriend, and they just got married! She shared, "So I would say it's a good luck charm for positive marriage vibes."
