I had to run around to gather all the ingredients, but it was worth it. Amazing!! It's dense, delicious, and moist.

If you haven't tried this cakeā€¦.. it you should!!! This IS fantastic. The best homemade carrot cake I've ever had. I didn't change the cake recipe at all! I did grate my own carrots but that's it. Moist and flavorful! Loved it! I doubled the frosting recipe as suggested. If you're going to make 9 in cake I think that's a good idea. Probably not necessary if you make a 9x13. I didn't add the lemon peel, just the juice and a tsp of vanilla. The frosting was great as well. Not too sweet, just enough. Going forward this will be my only carrot cake recipe!!!! YUMMY

LOVED IT!!! Only thing I changed was I needed more icing so I doubled that part. I have people asking for the recipe all the time.
