Gets extra bonus for being without flour. Too salty for me-I will use much less salt next time I make it.

This carrot cake is very moist. I followed the recipe, added 1/2 tsp ginger and omitted the walnuts. I also decorated the cake with sliced almonds. Our guests were asking for seconds! Thank you ...
