    Sharlene~W's Note:

    No, there aren't 14 carrots in it--only two, but this carrot cake with pineapple and pecans and a cream cheese frosting--worth every cent! It is from a Junior League Cookbook.

      when i first joined back in 2002 i was looking for a great carrot cake,and this is the one that caught my eye. i made it again today and it tastes just as wonderful as it did then.when i made it this time,instead of finely grating all of the carrots i rough grated some for a different type of texture. if you want an excellent carrot cake,look no further you found it. if i could give it more than 5 '*s .thank you so much for posting.

      DESERVES 10 STARS! I have made this twice now and it is absolutely delicious and moist! I found that you can cut the recipe in half to make 1 bundt cake/1 loaf pan/12 cupcakes. To make this recipe healthier, I switched the cream cheese frosting (I love it too!) to a maple syrup glaze. I heated up 2 TBL maple syrup with 1 TBL unsalted butter in a saucepan and drizzled it over the cake. Then I mixed 1 TBL of sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon and topped the cake! Still VERY delicious with a lot less saturated fat!

      I won't rate this because I changed the recipe slightly, but it turned out great. I had a jar of baby food carrots that I substituted for an equal amount of the oil. I'm not sure if it made any difference but the cake was EXTREMELY moist and not greasy or heavy at all!
