    Marina K's Note:

    This tried-and-true carrot cake has been updated to be a little more nutritious, and is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser. It is also very easy to put together and uses standard ingredients. If the batter looks dry (results will vary according to humidity and altitude), feel free to add a little milk. As for the icing, I have found that the moisture content of light cream cheese is higher, so you won't need to add any butter/ margarine.
