One for all you carrot cake purists out there. Carrot cake without the nuts, coconut, pineapple, raisins etc etc etc.

There’s a smidge of applesauce in the cake (well a cup), but other than that, this carrot cake is just that – carrot and cake.

This Just Carrot Carrot Cake is baked with love by Mary Mary Quite Contrary.

Or if you do enjoy a few delicious extras in your home-made carrot cakes, maybe I can tempt you with this gorgeous Carrot Cake recipe. Or how about this spectacular multi-layer Hawaiian Carrot Cake.

    Tried it. It’s really yummy- moist and dense, but not in the choky way, can hardly feel its fat reduced.
