This is the way I have been making Carrot cake for holidays, and birthdays for years. This is the most delicious, and moist cake ever. My friends and family all love this cake. It isn't dry like a lot of other carrot cakes.I have been told by many. It is the best carrot cake they have ever had. It keeps well in the fridge for weeks! It is full of fruit and nuts. It is a favorite in my home. I am sure it will be a favorite in yours as well. Enjoy!
