Carrot Cake a Good Cooking Guest Recipe
History: My best friend and I came up with this recipe one wet Saturday afternoon in Oxford, England, 15 years ago, after I kept on moaning how all Carrot Cake seemed to have too much fruit in it! I have lost count of the amount of times I have made it! I have made as presents for people, for members of my family and once, as a wedding cake! I have given alternatives where possible as English ingredients differ from American in some cases.
Description: Totally Divine Carrot Cake. Moist and More-ish !
Preparation time: 15 minutes prep., 1hr. 15 minutes baking
