Carrot Cake With Walnuts is an a awesome cake with little hint of nutmeg and cinnamon and it taste very good and lite. Using vegetable oil makes this cake very light and fluffy. Usually its icing with cream cheese, since I was out of cream cheese so I did with icing sugar glaze and it was not a bad decision.. It looked as beautiful and tasted as it suppose to be.. Since it's less calories and you don't have to worry after eating a piece and there is no compromise on the taste.. Try this recipe you'll love it..
