    momaphet's Note:

    In the same family as carrot cake, this version is lower in calories and fat, but still flavorful and moist. See who guesses the secret ingredient! This cake improves in flavor 2-3 days after baking.

      Outstanding cake, for sure! I'm big on raisins, so appreciated having them in this cake, but even more than that was the orange glaze ~ Loved that with the beets & raisins! I look forward to making this one again & again! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
