kitnknit 6 years agoI was looking for the perfect carrot cake recipe for my daughter's first birthday cake. I found it! Everyone kept telling me how delicious this cake was and all had seconds. One woman said it was the best cake she ever had. Extra points for being full of carrots--people noticed and approved. I wasn't looking for a low fat cake, I was looking for a cake that wasn't so junk foodie and made with all white flour. Because of this, I made a couple adjustments. I included 2 of the yolks in the cake instead of just the 6 whites. I also used milk instead of buttermilk. Actually (truth be told) I realized I didn't have milk so I used half and half! But it only called for a 1/2c, I think, so no big deal. Note to moms: This recipe works great doubled as a huge sheet cake. I left it in the fridge overnight and cut it to make a number 1 shaped cake and then frosted and decorated it. Pair this with a real cream cheese frosting and you've got a winner! I will be making this again...and again! Thanks!
