The Boss' Favourite Carrot Cake
Really good recipe. Reduced oil & sugar, made a couple of tweaks plus a teaspoonful of secret ingredient NOT vanilla extract. Really light & received compliments from all except one, but there always has to be that one! Making it again & may enter it in the Annual Flower & Show if I have time, as it just happens to be "the cake" this year!
