Carrot Cake Recipe
Tell the world what you have found here!

Carrot cake tastes so yummy! It’s a favorite at our house for desert after our Easter Sunday feast, but tastes good any time of the year.

Years ago, I was visiting a high school friend and had a slice of her mother’s delicious carrot cake. I asked for the recipe and have been making it for years now!

I make it from scratch and frost it with cream cheese icing.

Here are the recipes for the carrot cake and the cream cheese frosting.
