Friday Recipe: Carrot Pancakes with Cream Cheese Spread

Last week I had a conversation with a friend about carrot pancakes. Interesting, I thought. You make them and let me know. So she did, with this Carrot Pancakes with Cream Cheese Spread and took pictures. I tried them and yes. They are delicious. I wouldn't recommend them for a work day meal, but a day where you have time to do all this? Definitely!

Dash nutmeg
1 egg, lightly beaten
