Sam's Famous Carrot Cake
My daughter wanted to make a carrot cake- I didn't think it would tempt me, as I've never cared for carrot cake before; but this is not just any carrot cake. First, it baked up light and fluffy, not wet and brick-like. Second, the smell when it was baking was phenomenal- like gingerbread and the best dumpcake had a baby.
I followed the recipe to the letter, and everything, from ingredients to amounts to cooking time, was spot on.
Like others, I topped it with Cream Cheese Frosting II, (from this site) which is richer and less cloyingly sweet than most. It complimented the cake perfectly.
