I never go back to make comments after using a recipe but this cake was deeeellicciouss!!! I love how you include the whole kitchen sink - Carrot overload, pineapples, walnuts, raisins, coconut... All make it so moist!! I was also on the hunt for a recipe that used butter as most use oil. This was delicious!

This carrot cake is awesome!!! It is so moist. The pineapple was a great addition over my previous recipe. Everyone absolutely loved it. So moist and delicious. Will definitely make it many times over!! This is already the second time in less than a month I have been asked to make it!!

Ech! I tried it, my son tried it and we both agreed. It ended up in the garbage. Did not grow, the soaked raisins were so soft and mushy it was disgusting biting into one of them. Coconut was overpowering. Waste of ingredients. I found other recipes that suggested squeezing excess moisture out of the grated carrots. This one did not. Sickening sweet. Not for us.

Fantastically delicious, moist, morish. Just wonderful. The entire family love it. I used less sugar in the frosting than recommended (just ran out!) and it was absolutely delicous non the less.

We make this cake every year now. it is fabulously moist, and flavorful. The absolute best carrot cake for the true carrot cake lover. I have to bring this to my family in TN at every Easter now!

This cake was okay -- but not the delicious, traditional carrot cake I was hoping for. The carrot taste was a overpowering, making this taste a bit like a vegetable side dish rather than a cake. This recipe would be a lot better with about half the amount of carrots and a touch of cinnamon or allspice.

I thought it was great - my husband thought it was to "fancy" and would have preferred plain carrot cake. I made it into muffins the second time - he loved it!!

This was a very yummy cake! I made it for easter and portioned the frosting so I could pipe little carrots on top of each piece. I bought a 16 oz bag of carrots, which didn't give me 4 cups shredded as I thought it might, but it was close enough. 1 box of confectioners sugar is 1/2 of a bag, or 1 pound for those of you who buy it by the bag. Baked it a little less than an hour. Was time consuming, but I would make it again for a special occasion.
