Looking for a Carrot Cake or cupcake Recipe?  Here is one that makes a moist, dense, flavorful but not so sweet carrot cake or cupcakes that is simple and easy to follow.

Try this simple recipe for a deliciously moist, nutty and spiced carrot cake. | www.foxyfolksy.comI made the same cake for a friend`s birthday party last summer and used Cream Cheese Frosting. I was worried that the frosting may not hold so well or melt due to the warm weather. But to my surprise it endured and stayed in shape the whole day even at room temperature.

I added some whole pecan nuts at the bottom of the pan before pouring the batter for baking and it made a delicious crust. I also sprinkled the surface of the cream cheese frosting with cinnamon and it was a heavenly combination!
