This is the best carrot cake I've ever tasted. I've been making it for many yrs. Everybody loves it. It's even great w/o the cream cheese icing. Very moist & flavorable! Enjoy! Sorry no picture. NOTE: I sometimes make this into 3 8"x3 7/8"x 2 15/32" individual loafs to give away as Christmas presents.
