Thanks for this great and easy recipe! some changes; i use 3 jars of carrots, luv the flavor. i throw in a few Tbsp of coconut flakes. and about 1 tsp imitation butter Xtract. and im very very generous with the cinnamon. i grease 2 9 inch round alluminum pans and bake for about 45 mins. then i make a two layer cake and have frosting in the middle and all around. it looks a little more "grown up" and is still sinfully simple! Best of luck!!!!
I also made this for my son's first birthday party. He loved every messy little morsel. I was even finding it shoved up his nose the next day. :) And I agree, it did taste an awful lot like carrot cake. Thanks so much.
Excellent cake! I made this for my son's first birthday party and it was a hit with the other moms and their babies. The cake tasted a lot like a traditional carrot cake.
