This carrot cake was excellent!! I made it in two 8 inch round pans. I frosted one and froze the other for another day.

I LOVE this cake. This is the recipe my Mom made when I was a kid. The only thing I omit is the ginger, just my preference.

This recipe was delicious! Since I'm a baker by trade, I loved the ease of preparation. Unlike the first review, it's necessary to use a food processor to help in preparation, and every GOOD cook should own one. Was a wonderful, dense, flavorful cake and I'll use it many times in the future.
