A nice carrot and walnut cake with a slight taste of spice due to some spices like cardamom. It's not too sweet and the count of calories is moderate.

Absolutely gorgeous! I just followed the recipe exactly, except added a little bit of clove. Perfect if you're a beginner like me.

This is a European style cake. It's quite dry and not particularly sweet, but frosting helps with the extra sweetness. I will probably not make this one again because I like my cakes more moist, but it's a great recipe if you're looking for a European style cake.
