Lupin carrot cake deliciousness

Carrot cake is one that I personally have never liked, the thing is that my family LOVES it.  I have 2 recipes that I make, one of our children likes a basic carrot cake with not too many 'bits' in it & everyone else loves a more full carrot cake.  

Today I'm going to share with you the recipe with the 'more' in it.  I do love making this because I love the expression on their faces when they eat it, it's absolute bliss.
