Homemade Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

Recipe

This cake is gluten-free. It is delicious, but be warned that it does have a slightly different texture than a traditional wheat/gluten cake. It is made with plenty of eggs and almond meal to give as much of the desired cakey texture as possible. It helps too that it's loaded up with all sorts of other tidbits like pineapple, nuts, and raisins!
