Janie's Carrot Cake

Recipe by Just Janie

I like this incredibly moist carrott cake because it makes a single layer. I especially like to use the cream cheese frosting with the nut topping. Very rich and full of flavor. A great size cake for when you don't want a large dessert.

I increased the frosting a bit only because we like a nice thick layer LOL This is a very good carrot cake. Moist and delicious . I think next time I will add some golden raisins Made for PAC Fall 2009
