Looking for my Aunt Kathy's recipe... I think I found it!! The best of the best. I make with the pulp left from the carrots after I juice and it's so moist!

I had some carrots I needed to do something with and decided to make this cake. Me and my husband just LOVE it!! However, I used a store bought cream cheese icing to save time, but it was wonderful. Thanks for sharing it.

A great carrot cake, or at least that's what the people at work fighting over the last slice said! I don't normally make carrot cake but this one was nice as it was very moist. From the cook's point of view, I liked that it didn't have any 'extra' ingredients like pineapple so I could just use up what was in my cupboard.
