I love carrot cake, I have made several. I liked this cake and that frosting so I combined recipes to end up with this one. ( My favorite), When I make this I even have it for breaskfast with coffee. YUM

Excelent carrot cake! I just reduced a little of the sugar, instead of 2 cups I used 1 1/2 cups. For the icing I also reduced sugar and a little of the butter. Next time I will try with a chocolate icing. Anyway, the cake is very good by itself, with or without any icing... Thanks Melody H.
