I made mine into muffins instead and they turned out great. Its easier to grab and go this way. I left out the orange juice and zest in the frosting because I don't like the citrus flavor so much. I also forgot to put the coconut in but they're still very tasty. Thanks for the recipe.

People get weak in the knees when I make this recipe. It is 2d4.

This was my first attempt making carrot cake and I baked it for my sister's baby shower recently. Afterwards, people were raving about it; coming up to me asking for the recipe, saying it was the moistest carrot cake they've ever had, etc. When I brought some home to my husband, he informed me, "You don't know, because you don't usually eat carrot cake, but THIS is excellent carrot cake!" Thanks for the great recipe!

This is the best and also richest carrot cake I have ever had. I absolutely love it and the only one that I make and sell. My husband who loves carrot cake says that this is by far the best carrot cake he has ever had. I don't use all of the glaze because the cake seems to get wet as opposed to moist. I also don't use the raisins because I don't like them. I don't use the orange in the frosting either. I think I will next time I make it though.

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!

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.
