    Now how did this recipe slip by me? I believe you submitted it just after I had done some research to make some carrot cake muffins. Nevertheless, this is a wonderful recipe!

    Thank you :-)

    Oh my - I love carrot cake!! This deserves a 25 fork rating but they'll only show 5 of them. But be assured that pressed the fifth fork five times. Heh. Thanks for sharing!
