Abbott Northwestern Station 63 Carrot Cake

This is the absolute best Carrot Cake I have ever tasted. It comes from Abbott Northwestern Hospital, Station 63-- it's not hospital food, but a recipe from one of the nurses there. It is fantastic! Make it a day ahead and put it in the fridge after it is frosted and it gets even better!

    I have made this cake many, many times and couldn't believe I had not yet rated it. I have never been a carrot cake fan - I could take it or leave it - until I made this one after one of my children requested carrot cake for their birthday. This cake is moist with perfectly balanced flavors in every bite. Not too sweet, but sweet enough. This one has become a favorite in our family! Thanks for posting.

    To save time I bought cream cheese frosting but the cake was delicious. I made them into cupcakes so teh kids could have fun frosting them.

    My DH thanks you for this recipe. Carrot cake is a favorite of his, and this is the second time in a week I've made this. I did make a couple changes-I subbed applesauce for part of the oil, and used half sugar/half spenda. Since I didn't follow the recipe as printed, I can't compare the consistancy-but I can say even with the changes, this is the BEST carrot cake we have ever eaten. Thank you for posting.
