Another moist carrot cake recipe

I have been pretty happy with the moist carrot cake recipe I shared with you earlier and having enjoyed sweet success, I have been trying variations of the same. Here is another carrot cake recipe that you can try out. It worked well for me. I used the round 9" cake tin once and it got done in 40 minutes. You may have to try and see what works for your oven and it can vary slightly. I always liked the bar cakes and so I recently bought a loaf tin and inaugurated it by making this carrot cake. I like the big thick slices that you can cut out from a loaf so have been pretty pleased with the result :) The original carrot cake recipe called for 1 cup of sugar but I thought it worked well with 3/4 cup. Just cutting down on the calories and keeping it healthy... ;)
