Papa Knitschmidt has quite the sweet tooth and likes to bake. He has made some amazingly yummy treats! When Chalupa Boy was a baby I worked for Papa for a while.

This recipe combines my love of spice cake with carrot cake! You may wish to add raisins to this, but I prefer it without. Raisins vs. No Raisins is a big debate in our family. Almost as bad as the East Coast/West Coast Rap Drama of the 90′s. Which side are you on? Recipe: Carrot [...]
