"When I made this moist and tasty loaf for my vegetarian friends one Thanksgiving, they all took the recipe home with them," says Sherry Barber from Whittier, California. "To save time, I chop many of the ingredients a day ahead and store them in resealable plastic bags until baking day. I can't tell you how wonderful this loaf is.
A pleasingly moist cake, this treat is the one I requested that my mom make each year for my birthday. It's dotted with sweet carrots and a hint of cinnamon. The fluffy buttery frosting is scrumptious with chopped walnuts stirred in. One piece of this cake is never enough!—Kim Orr, West Grove, Pennsylvania
