What is a carrot cake recipe?

Carrot cake is a sweet, moist and dense cake usually made with grated carrots, eggs, flour and sugar. Some recipes also call for nuts like walnuts or almonds. There are several variations of carrot cake, including the classic version, pineapple carrot cake (with a can of crushed pineapple), and the spice cake with an addition of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Carrot cakes are perfect for those who don't love chocolate but crave something sweet. They tend to be much healthier than regular cakes because they are often prepared without any added fats or oils. Read on to learn more about this scrumptious treat!
