Moist, not too sweet, easily to put together cake. I also like the simplicity of the flavor.

Very moist and flavourful cake! I used two teaspoons cinnamon and 1/4 nutmeg and baked it in one large tin. Everyone loved it!

I cut this recipe in half since I live by myself. I also substituted 1/2 of applesauce for part of the oil, and then used 1/4 cup of oil. I followed the rest of the cake recipe as it was written. I didn't even bother with the icing because the cake was so delicious and moist. Incredibly moist! I will definitely be making this again!

This is EXACTLY THE VERY SAME RECIPE I HAVE USED FOR YEARS to make carrot cake, over 30 years now. I got it from my sister-in-law back in the '70s. Funny -- I thought all these years it was her grandmother's recipe.

I took this to Guadalupe House last week and it was a big hit!
I added the teaspoon of vanilla to the frosting, but that's all I changed.
Thank you for publishing.

After making your cake it is obvious how you won a Blue Ribbon. This cake is unbelievably moist and delicious. I made double tier instead of a 3-tier due to the size of my pans. I did not win a ribbon, but I may as well have, as I won rave reviews from my in-laws and my husbands co-workers. Quoting from one -That was the best carrot cake I have ever had. No joke. Stunning!!!! One happy camper!- There was not a crumb left in the end. I could not ask better than that! Thank you so much posting!

My fiance made this last night with my assistance because he had been really dying for carrot cake. We added raisins and walnuts. I think it was really good but not great. Definitely calls for more icing/frosting. We also added a tsp of vanilla extract syrup to the frosting. Yum!

Excellent recipe! First time making home made carrot cake and everyone was raving about it! thank you for sharing, this is absolutely a Blue Ribbon recipe! Very simple! I added about 3/4 of a cup of chopped walnuts as suggested by another user, next time I'll reduce that to 1/2 a cup. I also want to try replacing the oil with apple sauce to reduce the calories. Frosting was so fantastic! Whole recipe was very easy to make.
