The cake is very moist but I would prefer if it had more spice added. I found the flavor a little bland.
The idea of using oil bothered me so I decided to use applesauce as some had suggested in the reviews but I found the texture rubbery and too moist. The icing was very good though.
This is the best! Easy and simple .I substitute applesauce for some of the oil and add coconut and raisins. Excellent,and keeps for days.
Carrot cake is my favourite and this is one of the best I've tasted. I made it for my daughter's birthday party and everyone loved it.
this is a carrot cake from the top drawer. lovely moist texture offset nicely by the crunchy walnut and pineapple. i halved the recipe since it's just the two of us - and had enough batter to fill a 9" pan + make 6 dainty muffins (which my husband will anyway sneak into his lunchbox). i frosted this using recipe #22932. (12/2/07: Note to self in case I make this again - I made this again using applesauce instead of oil, as suggested by the other reviewers, and the result was more of a pudding than a cake. We had it topped with some whipped cream and I didn't think it would hold up under cream cheese frosting)
I have never baked before, this was my first time ever. My husband don't really like sweets, but he does have one weakness, carrot cake. He's very picky so I was a little afraid of the outcome of this cake. It turned out beautifully. It smelled so good coming out of the oven I couldn't wait to taste it. My husband told me it's the best he's ever had ^ ^ I loved it too. Very tasty. I did read previous reviews and took some advice; I used applesauce instead of oil and instead of 2 cups of sugar, I used a little less than 1 1/2 cups of sugar. I also used my own recipe for icing. Thank you Bertha for this recipe, I can say that I know how to bake now ^ ^
This was my first time making a carrot cake. I made it for my friends shower and everyone loved it! I did use the applesauce instead of oil, and left out a little of the pineapple. It was great! Thank you!
This turned out very moist and delicious. It was soo easy. I cheated a bit and used the carrot pulp that came out of my juicer. I purpously juiced fast so it would leave some of the moisture in the pulp. I ended up with enough to make this and some carrot muffins and some chocolate carrot/zucchini muffins.
I have made this cake numerous times and each time it goes quickly! I made the cake exactly as the recipe states. Thanks for such an easy and wonderfully delicious cake!!!!
