~ CAR-RAI-BAN-NUT Spiced Delight Cake ~

Cassie *


This cake has a lot to love, a little bit of something for everyone. Somewhat healthy too as it contains, fruit, nuts, vegetable and grain...on the lines of a carrot cake, but healthier. I added a creamy cream cheese frosting. Serve with or without, it's delicious either way. It's one of those cakes that gets better by the day.
