Just a spoonful of sugar... oh, let's be real!

Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake

I first tasted this crazy delicious bundt cake at a jewelry class.  It was our last
of the series and so we made it a pot luck.  The woman gave me her recipe and
I’ve made it a few times since, every time it has been incredibly moist and delish!

I’ll never need another carrot cake recipe.  I want to test it with round layers
for an upcoming birthday but for now, here is the bundt recipe…
