This is the same recipe as mine!!! It is the absolute BEST!!! Mine does have one difference, though. Mine calls for 3 tsp of cinnamon & 1 tsp cloves. It's fantastic!!! I'm off to the kitchen to bake one now!!!!

I'm not a huge fan of carrot cake but this is yummy! I diced the carrots up after shredding and chopped walnuts further to give the cake a finer texture. Next time, I will add less sugar to the icing. I love sugar, but it's a little too much.

Great recipe... but substitute the 1 1/2 cups of oil for 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened apple sauce and enjoy the same great taste with 336 grams LESS fat per cake!

No doubt about it...this one is really grrrate! I made it according to the instructions, using chopped pecans in the cake. In the South, we traditionally put nuts in the cream cheese frosting, so I used finely chopped pecans there too. I made this for my Mom's 82nd birthday. Everyone was super impressed and Mom said it was the best carrot cake she'd ever eaten. Given 82 years of living, that's saying a bunch!

Yeah It was pretty yummy! I made it about 2 weeks ago and I loved the walnuts in each bite.

Excellent cake! I did what a fellow reviewer suggested and replaced the oil with applesauce. It was fantastic, so moist and delicious. I also added a little clove and nutmeg. This is a definite keeper. Two Thumbs Up! Thanks for such a yummy recipe.

This was fabulous. I did use the 3 Tablespoons cinnamon, and added the cloves. I also think the pineapple was a great addition that I have never had with carrot cake befor. This will be one of my fav. cakes to make. Great, Great. Iva

Best carrot cake recipe yet. I appreciated the suggestions to increase the spices and to substitute some applesauce for oil. For my own taste, I'll probably reduce the sugar by 1/4 cup, especially with the icing next time.
