The Best Carrot Cake Recipe

The best carrot cake recipe is a tropical carrot cake style and it is simply the greatest!

This carrot cake has always been a family favorite of ours over the years. It originated from The Silver Palate Cookbook and from Connecticut where I am from. It's simply amazing and unique because it is made using puree rather then shredded carrots. You will find variations at the bottom of the page below. A pumpkin cake for Thanksgiving or Halloween and a carrot cheesecake combo. NEW Gluten Free version 

"I just wanted to let you know I made recipe over the weekend and it came out GREAT! My whole family loved it! And certainly those that didn't care too much for carrot cake - loved this one."
