    How Easy is that!!

    By far the easiest carrot cake recipe I have ever used and the results are delicious! I used a cupcake tin and got 15 small cakes perfect for this friday's morning tea at work. I also reduced the amout of oil to 120gms as that seemed 'enough'. Thank you Thermi Toni for a wonderful recipe!!

    Greatness is upon YOU.  Act like it!

    This is the third time I've made this cake in a fortnight in an effort to makes dent in our crop of carrots. It's delicious. I have altered it a litte however. I reduced the amounts of oil and sugar and chopped the nuts separately because I found they were a bit finer than we prefer.

    Such a lovely moist cake! I added pecans instead of walnuts, and also added lemon juice to the cream cheese frosting to give it a bit of zing!
