What a way to eat your vegetables! I work hard, try to eat a well-balanced diet, get plenty of exercise and watch my weight. I also absolutely love a great carrot cake, so what are ya gonna do...?. This looks like alot of stuff, but it is just some dry and some wet ingredients. Do not be deterred! Press on! This recipe has everything going for it, vegetable, fruits, nuts, grain, spices. This recipe is loaded with all the stuff I personally love in a baked dessert - and should drive diners to distraction because it releases an aroma that matches it's unmatchable flavors. I must add a disclaimer here that I have no vested interest in the carrot industry, because it sure sounds like I'm hyping carrots. This is simply a delicious dish. Remember that the applesauce, the pineapple and the carrots bring sugars to the party, so you may certainly cut back a bit on the brown sugar - as much as a 1/2 cup. It could be a perfect food. It could also be dessert. Tonight. Get it together and get busy. Time to craft the Ultimate Carrot Cake.
