    This is a great cake recipe by chnmom. It was getting bogged down in the What's For Supper Thread . I am moving it here for ease of finding and baking.

    I have one in the oven now.

    As I made this cake very early this morning. It was cooled and I was mixing the icing when my 2 yr woke and came to the kitchen. I handed him a crumble from the cake and started begging, "Bite. Please. Please. Now please." I gave in and gave him a spoon with a dab of icing on it - yes, before breakfast. I turned my back to get a paper towle and his had his spon dug into my cake. He looks at me and says, "Bite, please?"

    This is a good cake. It has my 2 year old sons spoon marks of approval. [​IMG]

    Oh, must try this! My DH loves carrot cake. Approximately how many carrots do you need to make 3 cups shredded?

    I usually add more than 3 cups - closer to 4. I use 6 - 8 carrots.

    Thank you to both Monica and Miss Prissy. I love Carrot cake. This morning after a huge country breakfast I started baking. I am in the middle of cookies and bread, but now I have to add this to my list. Looks and sounds so yummy. It also coms with the 2 year old's stamp of approval. [​IMG]

    Thanks again.
