I searched all over to find a carrot cake recipe that had all these ingredients and couldn't find one so I changed/converted one to get the results I wanted. I've been told by everyone that tasted it that this is the best carrot cake ever. I use a basic cream cheese frosting. Instead of 2 cups all purpose flour, try 1 c. flour and 1 c. cake flour but if you don't have cake flour it will still come out scumptous. Enjoy!!
