    Irmgard's Note:

    Every year at work we have around Valentine's Day a little ritual called Secret Pals, where you draw the name of a co-worker and spoil them all week with little gifts. At the end of the week you serve them with their favourite dessert and reveal your identity to them. One year I had someone who loved carrot cake so I wanted to give him something a little different so I looked through my cookbooks and found this recipe, which is a bit different than my usual carrot cake recipes. He absolutely loved it (and so did my husband!)

      I am only reviewing the icing as I made it to go on a banana cake. It was very good and I would use it again. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

      We LOVE carrot cake and were expecting more carrot cake flavor. This is a chocolate cake and tastes like chocolate cake, with some chewiness from the walnuts and coconut. This was just O.K...I'm not leaving a rating since it just wasn't our thing. We could taste the oil, it fell apart a little bit when we took it out of the pan even after cooling, and we couldn't taste the carrots at all.
