A typical carrot cake has 4 eggs, 2 cups sugar (why??? It is NOT a candy!), and 1 cup oil .
I made A LOT of changes in the recipe. I actually redid the whole thing, reducing the oil, sugar, eggs, and adding a whole new dimension of warmth and flavor to the cake with the addition of (interesting) spices.
