This cake was AWESOME. I substituted 1 cup of oil for 1 cup of applesauce and we had it for Easter dinner, my entire family LOVED it. (My mother in law owned a bakery for 15 years and thought it was the best carrot cake she'd ever had!) Thank you so much for posting!!!

"Kid tested. Mother approved." This is a healthier alternative to cake, and is very tasty. I used half beets and half grated pumpkin (instead of carrots). I used half the sugar, which was just the right amount. Great cake!

This is great! I made a half batch in an 8x8 pan, and it only needed 45 minutes in the oven. I halved the sugar, and it was quite sufficiently sweet, and I used apple sauce instead of oil to reduce the fat. Oh, and I toasted the nuts (5 minutes at 350F). It is an excellent breakfast, and I intend to make more to take on hikes.
