This is the one-layer rustic carrot cake I made very recently and served during a despedida party for a friend. This is the cake that started my desire to try baking. I was in college when I made my first carrot cake, which I did without the cream cheese dressing. The recipe is pretty much standard. I like the moistness of the cake. The icing is just right, and the chopped walnuts balances the richness of the icing. It’s perfect with coffee… and/or vanilla ice cream.
I should bake this again very soon.
