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
Very good, simple recipe. The cake was moist and delicious!
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 :)
