    Latchy, thanks heaps for this recipe. I love carrot cake but so many recipes have pineapple in them (yuck). The spices in this cake really compliment the carrot well, I had some ginger syrup so added 2T to the mix for a bit of depth, which tasted great. Everyone loved this, including the carrot haters out there, so a big pat on the back to you for helping convert them to the pleasures of fabulous carrot cake.
