    Based a grain free, low carb recipe off this. It turned out very well. Definitely making again with our tweaks.

    This is gonna get made this coming Sunday, maybe. I'm always looking for a really simple Carrot Cake too. But, this will definitely be a major contender. Plus, I'd absolutely add a strawberry and raspberry compote for coating and flavor.

    For future reference, this cake takes APF... all purpose flour.

    This is a good one for people who might be wanting something that uses a lot of eggs. Thank's!

    What kind of flour? I'd like to make this for Christmas and serve with fresh berries over it!

    self-rising flour, all-purpose flour, or cake flour?
