|Plenty of carrots make this cake extremely moist and dense.|
Carrot cake always reminds me of summer. This happens to be a particular favorite of mine--and my husband's and my grandpa's. In fact, this particular cake we made as a date whie we were still engaged. We went on a hike together and then came back to my apartment to have dessert. I've always been a huge advocate of just making desserts, since I prefer homemade ones to ones that I have had when out to eat. He had started to agree at this point in our relationship. (He agrees even more now, since I make desserts regularly.)
Since it was spring, and since he adores carrot cake, we landed on this one. I'm so happy we did.
