thank you!!! moist and tasty. my family loves it:-)...however i read the reviews after making one and found that by adding nutmeg, clove and replacing half a cup of oil for apple sauce it was the best carrot cake ever!!!...oh i also threw in a hand full of raisins.
one proplem i have is that once cut the layers slide of to side which spoils the look!!! but not the taste......any tips for making it stay together.
