Can anyone share or recommend a recipe for a carrot cake that is:
moist, has a fine crumb, not too oily, not too dense, lends itself to cutting without falling apart when slicing due to too many add ins like raisins, coconut slivers, nuts. etc.

THANKS!

I have a carrot cake recipe in the recipes on here that you may want to try. I'm not sure how to post the link. It's called the best carrot cake ever! It is a great cake. icon_biggrin.gif

I did cupcakes for a friend's baby shower and the carrot was amazing....but I realized I did it differently....Use the smallest shredder you can find. Mine is a hand one...it would make the fancy cut cheese shreds....it keeps the cake super moist !

Funny, I don't like the look of the carrot cake when I use my food processor to shred the carrots... but it does save on time! I am really just looking for a "fancier" version of carrot cake. And have not had the chance to try the "straight up" one yet... Hopefully soon!
