I have one loaded cake recipe for you guys today.
And by loaded, I mean loaded. Laden. Jammed. Packed. Jam-packed. This cake is literally loaded with goodness. It's like a little pack horse set for a journey, laden with goodies.
This cake, along with carrots, has coconut, walnuts, pineapple and raisins in it. Its moist, sweet and rather crunchy in places. I like cakes with crunchy bits in them. You will too, once you make this cake.
The longer this cake stays in your fridge, the yummier it gets. The ingredients seem to release more flavour the longer it's left there, and eating it cold, straight out of the fridge, is my favourite way to eat this cake.
Plus, that cream cheese icing is just... the icing on the cake. Literally.
