    Michelle in KY's Note:

    I get recipe requests every time I make this cake. I think the original recipe came from Taste of Home. I have a Kitchenaid mixer with the shredder attachment and use that to shred up the carrot, apple, and even the toasted pecans, but any shredder will do, or you could chop with a good old-fashioned kitchen knife instead! Note: Be sure to both grease AND flour your tube pan as this cake is very moist and needs the flour to help it release from the pan! Enjoy!

      I was excited about the concept of this recipe but it just didn't work for me. The only thing I did differently was to use half applesauce for the oil amount but I do that all the time without a problem. The cake was moist but had no flavor and the cream cheese filling had a strange texture. The praline was good but the pecans should be mixed in when it's still warm because the praline sets up too fast to get the pecans to stick. I really hate to give a low rating... the idea is good but the result wasn't what I expected.

      This turned out great moist and very delicious! I hesitated to try this because nobody reviewed it yet and i usually only try recipes that are rated 5 stars by at least 10 people.So glad i took a chance on it! he only thing i did differently was t leave out the pecans...since i had none and didn't want to run out and buy them.
