If you are someone who loves their carrot cake, here is a great recipe for one that is easy and delicious. This recipe is exceptional with its ease and excellence. This particular cake comes out extra moist due to the use of peanut oil as the shortening. This is a secret of the Deep South, where they love to use peanut oil instead of shortening. Additionally, this recipe includes large amounts of pecans and some cocoa, which both aid in making the cake more flavorful with a broader texture to it. The frosting tops off this dessert. Don't worry if you feel there is too much frosting. It usually all gets used.
