I took this to work for a retirement party and I had so many compliments that I thought I should be on a cooking show on TV. ;-) I was requested to make it 3 more times in the next 2 months for other occasions. My family loves it and people are still talking about it when they see me. Thanks for the real winner!
Easy to make. I did use 1 cup light brown sugar in place of part of the white sugar...just like the taste and texture better. Also didn't have enough walnuts so I mixed half pecans and chopped them vey fine in my processor (the kids never know that there are nuts and carrots in the cake when I pulverize them!). I used my own frosting recipe that is very similar to this recipe except my frosting contains a spritz of lemon juice (about 3T) and the spice mace (1/4 tsp) from an old recipe that I've used forever. I don't use the coconut but I may try it next time:) The cake is delicious!
The cake was delicious . . . only I added raisins and coconut into the cake batter and only had to cook it for 30 minutes. I also bought my own icing and when I toasted the coconut, I also put walnuts on top. Great cake! Everyone loved it.
I lost my recipe for carrrot cake.Was tearing kitchen apart,husband suggested I do a search on computer. This was the one I lost!!!SOOO man sometimes know what they're talking about.(joke)Cake turned out GREAT!!! Thanks again,Dawn
Made this cake for my co-workers as it was my birthday. Everyone loved it! I will only use a 1/2 cup of butter in the frosting next time, could taste the butter more than the cream cheese. Also had a piece to eat right after making the frosting. So I will make it ahead of time to let the flavors blend better. I have many co-workers asking for the recipe!
This is a delicious carrot cake recipe and easy! I'm taking it as a gift to my CEO tomorrow and I think he'll be thrilled.
This was the best carrot cake that I have EVER tasted. I really didn't want to use so much oil but decided to make the recipe exactly how it was posted and I was glad I did. I absolutely love love love this carrot cake.
Fantastic carrot cake recipe. I omitted the walnuts and coconut because I didn't have any, but otherwise followed spot on and it came out wonderfully! I'll definitely use it again. Thank you!
Great tasting!! Made a few adjustments to make it as healthy as possible for cake; did not use any oil, 14 oz can of crushed pineapple instead, added 1 cup of carrots, grated nutmeg, and 1 more tsp of vanilla. Frosting, used half of cream cheese and completed with plain yogurt (drained). A family hit - will try making them into cupcakes to make it easier to transport. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
This is a fabulous recipe; my husband liked it and he doesn't even EAT carrot cake! I only had a half cup of walnuts so I added a bit more carrots than the recipe called for. I also used a splash more vanila in the frosting. The result? I deliciously moist carrot cake with creamy frosting. This was the first time I made a carrot cake but I will definitely use this recipe again in the future. Thanks for sharing!
