    PaulaG's Note:

    I found this recipe in the April/May 2009 issue of Health Cooking by Taste of Home. This cake is packed full of carrots, fruit and delicious goodness. The original recipe calls for dried currants; however, I liked the golden raisins. The batter is very thick and I found it best to mix well with a wooden spoon to thoroughly incorporate.

      I really do like carrot cakes that don't include the usual cream cheese frosting, so was intrigued when I read this recipe! Made it pretty much as given, & did do a fairly fine chopping on the fruits that went into the glaze! This cake is a definite winner in my book, & I'll be keeping this recipe around! [Made & reviewed for one of my groupmates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #41]
