Carrot Cake

While talking to my mom this morning about cakes the idea for making a carrot cake popped in my mind. The garden is producing a lot of carrots right now and we have been feasting on them daily.
It took quite a few carrots to fill 3 cups. I have always thought grated carrots look a lot like grated cheese.
The first time I made carrot cake it turned out wonderful, very rich and moist, but for some reason I cannot remember where I found the first recipe.
Today's cake turned out fine, not as good as I wanted but still good enough to eat. I might just have to keep trying, especially since we have so many carrots right now!
