Janie's Carrot Cake

Janie's Carrot Cake created by wicked cook 46

I like this incredibly moist carrott cake because it makes a single layer. I especially like to use the cream cheese frosting with the nut topping. Very rich and full of flavor. A great size cake for when you don't want a large dessert.
