This is an absolutely FAB carrot cake,My late Uncle Rick gave my mom the recipe and I've been making it since I was 12 years old (now i'm 20 so go figure). I made it just ONCE at my aunties house and she's had to bake it every week for 4 months now because my uncle keeps requesting it! I always used to be asked to bring it for bake sales too :)

This is one of the best Carrot Cakes I have tasted in a long time. It was a very big hit at work and at Church. I had never made a Carrot Cake before this one and was surprised at how well I did. I love the taste and the ease at making this recipe. This is definitely a keeper for me to make again and again not only for work but for our Church events. Thanks for posting Nisa.
