    Sweet and spicy! You can make this in a foil pan to bring for pot luck, BBQ's or give as a house warming gift.... This was given to me by Barb. It's tweaked a bit. Enjoy!

      This carrot cake is so good. I made it for my father's birthday. He loves carrot cake and when I saw your recipe, I knew I had to make it. I used half the sugar and brown sugar. I omitted the walnuts. I used golden raisins. The icing is great. Texture of the cake was perfect. Thanks Rita :) Made for PAC Spring 2013

      This is the recipe I use. Moist, spicy and just plain yummy. I add raisins and just a tad more lemon juice. I've made it a few times now and we all love it. Thanks for sharing :)
