I've gone raw, but I bought carrots the other day. I still have a bunch of them left cause Pionner Woman's Sigrid's Carrot Cake recipe only yielded 6.5 cupcakes. I tried a bite... just one. FAIL. Oh well, not bad.
Anyways, I've never done anything with carrots or any vegetable in a dessert. The consistency of the batter seemed to overflow with carrots and not much batter. They turned out quite fluffy. Cream cheese frosting is always my favorite by the way.
