This is a super moist and nicely dense cake that lives up to the best of both worlds---Chocolate Cake and Carrot Cake! I think it's great for any occassion and depending on your preference, the choice of filling is up to you. The only requirement is that you share it amongst friends and loved ones! Happy Easter!
