Absolutely the best carrot cake ever, hands down!!!

"This is the best carrot cake recipe EVER! I made this for my mum today for mothers day and i was deciding between 2 recipes, and im glad i picked this! i was unsupervised in the kitchen and made it like it said but i only used 1 cup of veg oil and i used a sprinkling of nut meg. it says add half a cup of chopped nuts, use walnut. I LOVED THIS and i will make it again! and i am only 12 years old :-D"

Very good! Used my favorite Paula Dean cream cheese frosting, but other than that followed the recipe. Next time will need to make adjustments for high altitude.
