Carrot Cake

 
Carrot Cake Finished

May 4th 2012By Itsy Bitsy Balebusta

I received this carrot cake recipe from my grandmother. It's different than your typical carrot cake recipe in that it requires only carrot and no raisins or the like. Its simplicity allows the flavor of cinnamon and carrot coupled with the cream cheese icing to really stand out. While this one may be simple in its ingredients and method, it is far from basic or bland when it hits your fork. Its warm, dense texture is the epitome of comfort food and the icing is INCREDIBLE. This is a prized and valued recipe in my house, and a dessert that no one can resist taking one... two... or three pieces of! Enjoy!
