Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2013
This recipe is phenomenal! It's not too sweet, it's chock full of all the delicious things that make this a real carrot cake. I modified it slightly with some recommendations from other reviewers: added another cup of carrots, used 1 cup white and 1/2 cup of brown sugar, used applesauce instead of oil, I boiled the raisins in oj (OMG!), added a bit of allspice and nutmeg, almond extract and a lemon rind. I topped it with a mix of cream cheese and vanilla bean icing from Williams-Sonoma (their icings are insane!). My partner can't stop raving about it, the neighbors love it as well as all of those at work. This will definitely be my 'secret' recipe from now on. Thanks, Grandpa Sam, for making my first scratch carrot cake a hit!!
