For those of you who are unsure just what carrot cake is:
Carrot Cake is a lovely, rich, moist, sweet cake that tastes nothing like carrots.
However, carrots are used in this recipe, along with a host of other ingredients. This gives Carrot Cake a unique texture and flavour. Get the amounts wrong though and you could end up with a soggy mess.
Carrot cake can be made in round bun cases, small individual squares or as a large round or square cake. It can be shop bought and, though generally these are good, there is nothing to beat good home made carrot cake when you fancy a sweet treat.
The ingredients can vary a little and there is some leeway for those who do not like, for example, nuts such as pecans. These can be replaced with walnuts or simply omitted.
To my mind Carrot Cake is delicious and it looks as good as it tastes.
The carrot on the top of the cake is often made with coloured frosting.
