Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I have also tried carrot cakes from several different stores and NOTHING comes close to this carrot cake.

I love it because it's great for a holiday dinner. Everyone raves and it get devoured in no time. But, it's also perfect for busy weeknights. You can easily assemble this casserole ahead of time and stash it in the fridge until you're ready to eat it. Then just bake it off. 30 minutes and done!
