      I took this to work for a retirement party and I had so many compliments that I thought I should be on a cooking show on TV. ;-) I was requested to make it 3 more times in the next 2 months for other occasions. My family loves it and people are still talking about it when they see me. Thanks for the real winner!

      Easy to make. I did use 1 cup light brown sugar in place of part of the white sugar...just like the taste and texture better. Also didn't have enough walnuts so I mixed half pecans and chopped them vey fine in my processor (the kids never know that there are nuts and carrots in the cake when I pulverize them!). I used my own frosting recipe that is very similar to this recipe except my frosting contains a spritz of lemon juice (about 3T) and the spice mace (1/4 tsp) from an old recipe that I've used forever. I don't use the coconut but I may try it next time:) The cake is delicious!

      The cake was delicious . . . only I added raisins and coconut into the cake batter and only had to cook it for 30 minutes. I also bought my own icing and when I toasted the coconut, I also put walnuts on top. Great cake! Everyone loved it.
