Absolutely delicious! One of the best carrot cakes I've had and there was no way you could tell it was gluten free! I went exactly by the recipe and wouldn't change a thing. I used a recipe from one of my cook books to make the cream cheese frosting.

This makes a great dense cake, no wheat flour or sugar. I didn't have grapeseed oil so use canola which seemed to work fine. The cake stuck to the pan so I would use parchment paper or something on the bottom of the pan the next time. I frosted it with simple neufchatel cheese sweetened with agave syrup and a teaspoon or two of vanilla extract.
