Fantastic, took this to work and was told by multiple people that it was the best carrot cake they ever tasted. Only made a few changes. I like more spice in my carrot cake, so I used 3 tsp of cinnamon, and 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice. As suggested by another reviewer, I boiled the raisins in orange juice, and they were delicious. (I'm going to remember that trick...thanks!) I also splurged on the "mix-ins" adding heaping cups of carrots, raisins, nuts etc. instead of carefully measured ones. The cake held together nicely. I topped it with the cream cheese frosting II (2-8oz. cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter, vanilla, and 2cups powdered sugar). It was fabulous. I will make this over and over.
