Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

We went for a quick overnight trip to Mandurah and bought a BIG BIG bag of fresh organic carrots for $1. It was soooo big that I was wondering how in the world am I going to use it up?

So I grated half a kilo and proceed to make a carrot cake (still too much!!)

Although there are many recipes out there, I chose this time to use trust Donna Hay again. The addition of sultanas not just gave it a juicy texture but an added surprise. The cake turned out moist and delightful. I brought it to a group gathering and it was a hit! All gone in 20 mins. *beams*
