    HokiesMom's Note:

    A little twist on the standard carrot cake. I hope you enjoy the flavors. I am adding a separate recipe for the optional Coffee Cream Cheese Frosting too. Coffee Cream Cheese Frosting

      This cake is so good. I used 1 1/2 cup sugar. I didn't want it too sweet. Instead of nutmeg, I used more cinnamon. I sliced it in half and put this frosting on one part : Cinnamon & Spice Cake Frosting Thanks Melissa :) Made for Market tag game

      We just had to give this 5 stars! DH has just recently developed an allergy to dairy products. This has none. I did serve it with a non dairy whipped cream and it was so yummy. The hardest part was finely grating the carrots. This came out really nice and moist. Made as posted and thanks for posting. :)

      so moist and delicious, I made as stated only I used chopped walnuts in place of pecans, and topped it with my Kittencal's Best Cream Cheese Frosting (Extra Creamy Option) I will make this again soon, thanks for sharing Hokie!
