Carrot cake is the perfect combination of everything that is right in this world and it should be eaten all the time.
It is ultra moist, decadent without being too heavy, and often laden with lots of delicious cream cheese frosting. It also obviously has lots of carrots in it too, so it’s a little bit healthy (maybe).
If you don’t know how to make the classic cake you should try Mile End’s carrot cake recipe.
