Autumn and winter have us craving wholesome desserts. This cake is packed with nuts and carrots, and is wonderfully moist. It's a delicious treat that everyone will love – even the kids (my son loves it more than anything). You'll be able to get veggies into your kids easily with this cake. You don't notice the carrots at all, but they are essential for texture. The alcohol from the rum evaporates during baking but if you'd prefer to leave it out altogether, then simply substitute it with milk.
