This cake is awesome! It isn't super heavy like most carrot cakes. It has great texture AND great flavor! Only thing I added was a teaspoon of almond flavoring. I also used a different frosting but that's because I have a favorite frosting! I baked at 350 for 30-35 minutes in a 9 inch round--perfect!! I'm using this cake for my sister's wedding.
