Last week was my husband’s birthday. We have been so busy working on our house lately, that we really haven’t taken much extra time out to really enjoy each other and our family. My husband loves Carrot Cake, so this is something I make special for him every year. This year was no exception and he decided to cut the remodeling short that day and enjoy cake and the homemade presents from our children. This cake, and my husband of course were the highlight of the evening.
This Old Fashioned Carrot Cake is rich, moist and sooo delicious. It is one of those cakes that makes you close your eyes and say “Mmmm” with every bite. Freshly grated carrots, crushed pineapple and golden raisins make up the two cake layers which are covered in a delicious Cream Cheese frosting topped with lightly toasted walnuts. It was so nice to enjoy a quiet, relaxed evening with my family and end it with this decadent dessert. If someone special in your life loves carrot cake, I promise you this cake will not leave you disappointed!
