An absolutely delicious chocolate carrot cake! So chocolaty, full of orange flavor, and very moist; loved the double glaze, which made the cake look so pretty and attractive, also added the extra layers of flavor. I actually used all whole wheat flour, and the cake tured out fluffy and moist. Next time when we have company to come over, this will be the dessert we are going to make!
