The difference is this one starts with a cake mix -- and a chocolate mix at that. Usually I just see recipes that call for adding a little cocoa powder to a standard carrot cake batter. This one promises some good chocolate flavor and I can't wait to try it. I'm keeping the recipe here for safekeeping.
