Description

Though easy to make, this moist, spiced carrot cake still includes the classic raisins, walnuts, and luscious cream cheese frosting. Serve the two layers individually, or stack them for a layer cake. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Sara Mellas.

    it turned out great. taste was amazing and moist. the frosting came out to be a lot leftover or you can layer it on heavy but that tasted good also

    I'm diabetic, so I substituted Stevia for the sugar and brown sugar. Tastes great and doesn't spike my blood-sugar.
