Donata's Story

I can't take the credit for this recipe for I found it on a food manufactures website but tweaked it a little. It's easy and tastes like fall. I also love this recipe because it's so versatile. Add coconut & raisins to the cake and omit the maple syrup from the frosting.

I wonder if your sister hated her name as much as I did growing up? This cake is great, I actually prefer to use the carrot cake mix instead..it's the frosting that makes it wonderful.
