      Thi is a wonderful cake.I have to admit I have been making this same recipe for about 30 years.This time I grated my carrots in the food processor found they were a bit large. I added the rest of the cake ingredients to the carrots;pulsed a few times until it was pretty smooth and poured in my pan.Wow, a lot less trouble than the regular way.I added 1 cup of chopped pecans and lined my pan with parchment paper. It was a hit;I hadn't made a carrot cake in a long time; thanks for posting. It's the best carrot cake ever!!!! Rita

      Very easy carrot cake to make. It even stayed moist after 5 days! THe icing is very rich, so maybe add a little cream
