Johanna's Carrot Joyce oroz

Today we will bounce (or hop) off the "Easter bunny theme" onto the "carrot cake theme."
My husband loves carrot cake (health food in his word) but he hates gluten-free anything except a certain recipe for gluten-free carrot cake given to me by my dear x-sister-in-law's daughter, Johanna Sherley. This cake has the texture and moistness of the real thing.
