I really liked this, but I'm not sure if it was a hit with the rest of my family. I didn't get any positive comments. It is very flavorful, but I might have over baked it just a tiny bit.

I love the frosting on this, and it is similar to the Carrot Cake frosting but uses some of the spices from the cake instead of sour cream. It does take a little bit longer to make because of browning some butter and blooming the spices in it, but I think that bit of extra effort is worth it.
