This is the carrot cake that my Great Aunt made for Larry, this was his favorite cake. He and my cousin have been best friends since they were at Indiana State college.

I can see why this carrot cake recipe is famous. It's a delicious, classic carrot cake recipe. The purist in me thinks carrot cake should have raisins, so I added them. They're a great addition. The cake itself is packed with flavor. The icing is really smooth and creamy. The nuts on top add a nice little crunch. So good! The Test Kitchen
