From my mother-in-law. This carrot cake does not have a cream cheese frosting. I have not had this yet, but my hubby says it's wonderful. He says that he can't taste the bananas in the cake, but it's been years since he's had it, so that might be wrong. He says it's really good though.

YUMMMM!! I used whole wheat pastry flour and palm sugar, and couldn't not put a cream cheese icing on top! Served up at a dinner party and even the dieters took seconds. Moist, flavorful and addictive! I'll definitely make this one again.
Perfect recipe! Next time I will omit the nuts as my 7 yr. old detected them no matter how small I chopped! I like the fact that the carrots were undetectable.. delicious!
This cake turned out very nice. Moist and tasty. Thanks for sharing :)
