      I DEFINATELY give this 5 stars. I made it to use up some of the carrots from my garden, and it was a hit! I took some to my neighbor and her husband loved it so much it's all he talked about. I just emailed him the recipe today and sent him over some carrots. Needless to say, he started baking right away! (I better get a slice. lol.)
