This was really fast and easy to put together. It sure beats the heck out of grating carrots! I will definitely be making this again.........
This is absolutely the best cake!!!!!!!!!! It is so easy to make and not to have to grate carrots is so good.It is very moist and the coconut just adds to the moistness.
I LOVE carrot cake but hate grating carrots and I have to watch my calories now. So that being said I did make some changes so that I could eat this without feeling guilty and boy did it turn out GOOOOOD!! I used 1 cup all-purpose + 1 cup wheat flour, added 1/2 teaspoon allspice, used unsweetened applesauce for all the oil, used egg substitute for the eggs and made a sugar free vanilla sauce for the frosting. It was moist and you would never know it was low cal by the taste of it. With the changes it added up to only 175 little calories per slice (well worth it in my opinion, plus I like to count this as going towards my daily veggies ;)) and you can be sure I will be making this often! Thank you very much!!
Baby.....? You need to remove that from the name. All that sugar and nuts. Very misleading.
This cake was wonderful!! I made it for Mother's Day and everyone loved it so much, they asked me to make it again for our Memorial Day picnic. I cut down on the amount of sugar and oil in the recipe and it still turned out great. Thanks for a great recipe.
Yum! I halved the recipe and baked in an 8X8X2 pan and it worked great. I omitted the nuts and added raisins. I had some leftover cream cheese frosting and used it on this cake. Very good - it will be made again!
delicious!! omitted the coconut (didn't have any). my boyfriend was completely skeptical about the substitution of carrot baby food instead of real carrots, but when he tasted it he said "WOW! this is really good! it tastes like the normal stuff!" i cut the recipe in half and baked it in a 9x7 pan. also, i subbed applesauce for 1/3 of the oil. i used '1/3 less fat' cream cheese and no vanilla for the frosting and it was still fantastic!
Maybe I defeated the purpose, but I grated carrots for another recipe. Not having the ingredients for it I came across your recipe so just pureed the carrots and a couple prunes (add sweetness and fiber). This was moist & delish - the perfect ending to Easter dinner -08. I also used a sheet pan so halved the icing recipe. It was decorated with green colored coconut, fresh strawberries and jelly beans for a holiday touch. Thanks for sharing. It's a keeper!
Delish and easy!
NO GRATING CARROTS, was the best part of this recipe. I couldn't find 6 ounce jars of baby carrots therefore I used 3 jars of the 4 ounce size and it worked just GREAT. The cake was moist and delicious. It was better the next day. I used half of the frosting recipe for a 9 X 13 pan, otherwise the whole amount would be too much frosting.
