Need Carrot Cake [DTW]

I am craving carrot cake. So; yesterday I visited Fox & Hounds ... and
was advised they don't make carrot cakes. I'm thinking that I can do
better than Kroger/CostCo/Sams.

  1. If you feel like baking, I've got the perfect recipe!

    1. I'm sure that Ed Shogren at Chef Ed's Weekday Cafe in Eastpointe does them, but I don't think he'd be able to get to it this week. I love most of his cakes, but Carrot Cake is one that I've never cared for, no matter who makes it.

      Not sure if that helps you or not, RS.

      1. Trifles Cakes in White Lake on Highland Rd has the best carrot cake ever. You might want to call ahead and make sure they have one on hand or order a day or two before.

        1. OMG this is my very favorite recipe for Carrot Cake. I make it every chance I get. Sometimes muffins and I make lots of substitutions as I go along..such as.. Pecans for Macadamia nuts.and ground ginger for crystalized and honey for maple syrup. It is....da bomb and easy, easy.

              I'm going to try this, LOVE carrot cake! Thanks for posting.

            2. Saw a carrot cake today at Achatz - 8" square w/cream cheese frosting. I'm not a big carrot cake fan, but I've certainly enjoyed all their other baked goods. Got to be better than the chain stores.
