Don't pass this up! This is the best carrot cake! It may not have raisins or nuts like most carrot cakes, but you won't miss them in this cake! My mom made this when I was growing up. Now it's my turn! So much better than box cakes! It's very rich, but you won't be able to stop eating it. The cream cheese icing is to die for!
