Carrot cake is moist, dense, soft and delicious with grated carrots, walnuts and cinnamon. It was a big hit in my family. We loved plain carrot cake itself, but if you prefer, you can decorate it with cream cheese icing. My suggestion is, do not prepare the cake without walnuts and cinnamon as they give nice flavor and taste to the cake. Today we will learn how to prepare carrot cake following this easy carrot cake recipe.
