The above recipe looks like my favorite traditional carrot cake. So good, especially with cream cheese frosting.  I also really like the recipe by Martha Stuart (link below) which is just a bit lighter and makes up nicely as a layer cake.  I also stir in  3/4 cup crushed well drained crushed pineapple  at the end (personal preference).|/274994/carrot-cake-recipes/@center/276954/great-cake-recipes|344218
