  1. It looks great, I`ve always wanted to try a carrot cake but never did! So thanks for the recipe :)

  2. My big secret when I make carrot cake is to use the carrot dela separate leaving, when I use the machine to make juice, you know, the part that people usually throw away. ok is finely chopped and kept moist, which does not have the carrot when raw streak as it says 100% of the recipes.
    Hope you enjoy, and follow my advice. Nanny
