You will love the rustic flavor of this honey flavored chocolate cake, reinforced with grated carrot, nuts and raisins. The carrot helps to keep the cake moist, while chocolate makes it appeal to all. Condensed milk gives the Chocolate Carrot Loaf a very rich and intense flavor, which makes you want to reach out for another slice.
