Strawberry-Carrot Cake

I have had a few requests for this recipe so I thought that I would post it here in case any of the rest of you would like to try it. Mama has made this cake for me for the past 10-ish years, and each time I eat it I remember why it is my favorite. :) It is so delicious. I hope you enjoy trying it.

Strawberry-Carrot Cake

1 cup carrots, finely shredded
½ cup vegetable oil
¾ cup buttermilk
½ cup walnuts, chopped
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup strawberries, finely chopped
2 ½ cups flour
1 ¾ cups packed brown sugar
Strawberry-Cream Cheese Glaze

Grease and flour bundt cake pan. Beat all ingredients except strawberries and glaze in large bowl on low speed 45 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Fold in strawberries; pour into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes or until wooden pick comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan. Cool completely. Spoon glaze onto cake. Refrigerate remaining cake.

Strawberry-Cream Cheese Glaze:
2 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon mashed strawberries
