I will give you the absolute BEST Carrot Cake recipe I've found! I printed it out a few years ago, and make it every year for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter--because of demand! :o)
I "tweak" this recipe, by adding a cup of brown sugar, and to make it EXTRA moist, add 1 cup of crushed pineapple. If you don't like pineapple, you can simply add an extra 1/4 cup of oil. And I prefer my carrot cakes to contain walnuts, both in the cake, and "drizzled" on top of the frosting. I also found that adding the pineapple, increased the bakign time by about 20-30 minutes--so be careful and watch closely.

Duh.......Here, I found it!
Do not omit the buttermilk glaze it absolutely makes the cake, and use only real ingredients with this recipe. . I add golden raisins ( 1 Cup)Â that have soaked in rum or other liquor of choice for about 6 hours and do not use the grated carrot. I use 2 large jars of carrot baby food instead. Use only canned coconut, and not the bagged it makes a huge difference.
Also, if you omit the carrot completely and use 2 large jars of plum baby food it makes a wonderful plumpudding cake for Christmas, with a marshmallow frosting it absolutely fabulous.
