5 stars and I don't even like carrot cake! Easy to make, addictingly delicious, lighter with a better flavor than normal carrot cake.

I love this cake. The fresh ginger makes it taste so good. It is fairly easy to make and turns out good every time. I make it with white whole wheat flour and cut the sugar by 1/4 cup.

FYI, the print version of this recipe directs the user to cream "1 oz of cream cheese" with the rest of the ingredients for the Double-Cream Cheese Frosting. Obviously, this is an error: the above recipe calls for 1-8oz package.
