Autumn Carrot Spice Cake (a bundt cake)

Bundt Cakes are a really special treat. They are larger than a layer cake and keep well. This Carrot Cake is a nice change from the typically oily 1 layer cake that is overflowing with cream cheese frosting. I did not include nuts with my this recipe, but feel free to add them if you wish. Add them when you add the flour to the batter. Use up to 1 cup of them. This is a cake that absolutely captures the enthusiasm for Fall Cuisine.
