I love carrot cake but NO nuts in it. When G and got married I asked for a carrot cake as our wedding cake, with cream cheese frosting. It was beautiful to look at and very us. when it came time to cut and feed one another a slice I realized I had forgotten something....I had neglected to tell the baker NO nuts in the cake..and there they were..walnuts. I had to somehow discreetly remove it to a napkin and had no more of our cake. I am not allergic, they just literally make me sick to even smell walnuts. SO, I will copy and paste your recipe and leave that part out!
Thanks for sharing it - hope you didn't mind my little story.
XOXO
