This cake has simple ingredients that are extremely quick to put together. I used pre-shredded carrots in a bag from the grocery store and then just chopped them up a little shorter with kitchen scissors. I also used Pilsbury cream cheese frosting. The taste was not overly sweet and had a very old-fashioned taste. The cinnamon and allspice were just right too. The cake was very moist. I cooked mine for exactly 52 minutes. Thanks, Hill Family!
