Have never had a Publix carrot cake....

But you asked for a great carrot cake recipe, and I must say that the Carrot Cake Straight Up is excellent:

this is my favorite recipe I can't remeber where I got it but I've had it for years.
Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

1 Cup vegetable oil 2 tsp. cinnamon

1 Cup sugar 2 tsp. baking soda

1 Cup firmly packed brown sugar 1/4 tsp. salt

4 eggs 2 Cups grated carrots

1 Cup flour 1 8oz. can crushed pineapple drained, 2 TBL reserved

1 Cup whole wheat flour 3/4 Cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350* Butter a 9 x 13 pan. Using mixer combine first 4 ingredients. Sift together both flours, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Mix into liquid ingredients. Stir in carrots, pineapple & juice and walnuts. Pour into prepared pan and bake for about 45 min. until done.

Cream Cheese Frosting

2 8oz. pkges. Cream cheese 1 ½ Cups powdered sugar

3 Tbls. Butter room temp. 2- 3 Tbls. Milk

2 tsp. vanilla

Using mixer combine cream cheese, butter and vanilla. Beat in powdered sugar alternately with milk. Depending on how you like the consistency of your frosting is how you measure the milk I usually just use 1 Tbls. because I like a thick rich frosting !!!!

Are there other icings that can go with carrot cake besides cream cheese icings? (I'm not big on cream cheese). Just wondering!
