I am looking for a carrot cake recipe that makes the old style cake — dark (a warm brown color), dense, moist cake, (high carrot content, I think) and definitely NO PINEAPPLE OR COCONUT. Raisins and walnuts definitely OKAY. While the newer recipes are more like regular cake, they are not the carrot cakes from the 70’s that I remember and love (and are no match, either, as far as I’m concerned). .Does anyone know a local bakery who does or would make one with these requirements? This is for a 60th birthday, and the birthday girl really wants to relive the carrot cake experience.
Thanks for any leads or recipes.
