About my lazy afternoon and the Carrot Cake

This is my Saturday lazy afternoon: 
Outside it's -3 °C, everything is white because of the snow and ice.
Inside Bebe has high temperature, so nothing to do, just looking after her and...baking this Carrot Cake for Dom and his Random Recipes 1st Bday

300 gr carrots
3 eggs
150 gr almonds
150 gr sugar
50 gr dried coconut
3 tsp baking powder
200 gr milk chocolate

Put carrots into a mixer and grind them.
Make the same with almonds and sugar.
Stir together carrots, almond and sugar, add backing powder.
Add eggs one at a time.
Backe at 160 °C per 10 minutes than 180°C for 40 minutes.
Heat a pan of water and simmer, put the chocolate into a metal bowl and place over the simmering pan of water.
When the chocolate is melted, use it to cover the cake.
