    Ranikabani's Note:

    I got this from an article (and I can't remember where I read it). It was about a family who had family reunions every year and they put together their favourite recipes. This was one of them which was in their family for many years. After you taste it, you'll know why it's a favourite! If you want to add a cream cheese icing, do it when the cake has completely cooled. I have tried many recipes but haven't found one that I really like yet so I serve it plain and it still disappears quickly!

      I can't believe this hasn't been reviewed yet - it's absolutely divine! I am going to delete all other carrot cake recipes from my cookbook now 'cause I've found my perfect one. I reduced the sugar to 1 1/2C but this was still a bit too sweet for our tastes so I'll reduce it even further next time. Thank you Ranikabani for a perfectly moist, fluffy carrot cake :)

      An excellent cake.So easy to throw together.I reduced the sugar to one cup and increased the carrots to 4 cups.Maybe I'll try and reduce the oil to one cup next time just to make it a little healthier.Definitely a must try!
