This cake is amazing. I think its the best carrot cake I ever tasted. I'm not crazy about the frosting. My mom always puts the pineapple in the frosting which makes not as beautiful but sure tasty. Maybe I'll put pineapple juice in the frosting next time.

Made this for our Easter dessert-This cake is just phenomenal! I bake a lot and I must say this is probably one of the best cakes I have ever made. The buttermilk glaze gives a wonderful rich taste and WOW is it moist!! If you want or need to impress someone with your kitchen skills, bake this cake!

I've been making a variation of this for years and it is by far the most requested cake I have. Can't wait to try yours!

LOVE this recipe! Made me look like a rock star and I've never even made a carrot cake. Thank you for posting.

From now on when I am asked to bring dessert this will be it. Easy, different (At least in this part of the country) and the taste is wonderful. Thanks for submitting and congratulations on your blue ribbon.

I have been making and serving this cake for over 20 years- with only the buttermilk glaze. It has always been a huge hit, especially when I was catering! The orange juice and zest in the frosting cake only make it taste more wonderful!

This cake can be described as delicious beyond delicious. I thought I had the best carrot cake recipe until I tried this one. Now, I will only use this recipe. It is even delicious without the frosting. Unbelieveably wonderful...Give it a try and you will agree.

This is a winner. My husband isn't a big cake eater at all but he is now reminding me how much he loves this carrot cake, considering I accidentally read the recipe wrong and doubled the sugar...stupid mistake, it still tasted amazing, so moist and flavoursome - this is a recipe keeper.
