This cake is locally famous and so good! I always frost it with my Eva Rae's cream cheese frosting Eva Rae's Cream Cheese Frosting.

This carrot cake is AWESOMENESS!! When you add the carrot to the batter, it looks like a ton of carrot, but when it bakes up, it's all perfect! Moist, flavorful and delicious :) The cake is not too sweet and I ended up using this cream cheese frosting recipe ------> http://www.food.com/recipe/cream-cheese-frosting-68975 because the one recommended (Eva Rae's Cream Cheese Frosting) would not open. Anyway, loved it and can't wait to make it again next Easter!!
