Naomi's Carrot Cake

God, love Naomi for creating this cake.

I hated carrot cake all my life. Although it was one of my Mother's favorite. She loved the Getty museum's carrot cake. There was just something about the texture of carrot cake I hated.

If Naomi hadn't served this cake one day and told me it was carrot cake, I would have missed out on eating a fabulous Cake.

My sons even love it.
