ISO Carrot Cake recipe

I have some very large carrotts that I pulled out my garden, and thought I could use some of them in a carrott cake. Anyone have a recipe they would like to share?

Yours sounds good too.. I'd make it for Paul but
I'm sure he'd say, "This is really good... but, why didn't
you use mom's recipe?"
