I've already tried several carrot cake recipes-but I never thought that any of them hit the spot quite so well as this one! I was getting tired of all of the recipes where the carrot was not really getting the position it deserved in the taste. That's the reason why I decided to add more carrots combined with raisins and walnuts to give the cake some more flavour. I hope you like it! P.S. I've decided to stop translating the blog entries to german seeing as I'm pretty sure the majority of readers understand english :)
