Made this cake for World 'Zaar day and my hubbie's birthday. He loved the cake and icing. I think if I made it again I would add some vanilla extract to the cake. In the Deep South pecans are traditional for carrot cakes, but I tried the walnuts and they were good. I mixed them into the frosting too.

I tried the cake with carrtos first and it was very tasty. Then I swiched the carrots with apples and added some more chunky apples in the middle of the cake with 1 cup of walnuts. Worths trying...
