Carrot Cake

Want to know how to make this?

The cake is quite easy to make and is very good. Note that this recipe is in ounces and it doesn’t convert into cups as you would think. 8oz of sugar doesn’t equal 1 cup. Measuring and baking by weighing will make your products of better quality. You can get an inexpensive scale from Wal-Mart, Target, or Bed, Bath, & Beyond. Owning and baking with a scale will change your life. If you want to make this recipe and want it in cups please leave me a comment and I will give you the conversions.
