READY IN: 1hr 10mins

I have made this cake many times it's very good, I use my Kittencal's Best Cream Cheese Frosting (Extra Creamy Option) to frost the top but you may use your own favorite frosting :)

Top Review by Susiecat too

This is a delicious, moist carrot cake. Just FYI, I got a tad more than 3 cups shredded carrots from a 1 lb. bag. I made one change, and used 1 3/4 cups brown sugar and omitted the white sugar. Everything else I left as is, and this cake is spectacular. I will make it again and again. I used my own favorite cream cheese frosting (similar to yours but without any whipping cream or whipped topping, and with the addition of a teaspoon of almond extract) and this cake was gobbled right up for dessert tonight. Yummy! Thanks Kittencal for another guaranteed success!
