PHX: carrot cake recipe and good eats?

starlightjulian | Jul 20, 2007 01:28 AM

Was at Scottsdale Fashion Ctr today killing time before catching a movie at Camelview when I caught a glimpse (OK, several glimpses!) of Paradise Bakery's carrot cake, which I consider the best I've ever tried. Their carrot cake is pretty much all chunky filling, with minimal cake and a layer of cream cheese frosting on top. I pretty much scrape most of the icing off as the cake is perfectly delicious on its own!! Would like to know if someone can post a recipe that will yield this very carrot cake?

BTW, as it was midday, I was able to fight the temptation to buy a slice to go... I wish I could say the same about the brownies, Germanchokolatekake creation, and a few Endangered Species chocolate medallions I had tonight!

Your input is very much appreciated!
Thank you!

p.s. I would like to add that I'm allergic to bananas, peaches, corn (cornstarch is particularly painful!), and cucumber, among other things, so please offer a substitution ingredient if your recipe calls for it/them.

p.p.s. Any recommendations for best carrot cakes to be found in PHX and surrounding areas?
