I found this recipe on and saw that it had the most and the highest rated reviews. I was glad I gave it a shot, the cake was the best carrot cake I've made. It was flavorful and moist. I threw raisins into the mix as well and used my Favorite Cream Cheese frosting recipe. Which I will put on a separate post.
