This recipe is so named because my daughter helped me make it, and we used carrots pulled from our garden right before baking. This is also a cake for high altitude (I'm at a little over 5000 feet, so beware if you are 7000+). What I did was take highly rated carrot cake recipe and adjust it for altitude and personal taste (added nutmeg, for example). It did fall a bit in the middle, but I think that's because I couldn't resist opening the oven door at one point (bad!). Nonetheless, everyone said it was the best carrot cake they'd eaten, and it was super moist. I've since edited the amount of vegetable oil down a bit because that might have been what made it a touch heavy. If you want to prepare it the way I did originally, use 1 1/2 cups of oil. Also, I use half grapeseed and half canola oil. I'm convinced the grapeseed oil contributes to an exceptionally moist cake. For the cream cheese frosting, I used recipe #6536 by riffraff, but I've included it here to save time. Frosting was absolutely delicious and I made no changes except to use orange food color (as you can see from the photos).
