VERY good carrot cake recipe, even though the two 9-inch layers did not rise much for me (you did not say anything in your recipe about the pan size, so I had to guess). I frosted the cake with a wonderful cream cheese frosting which consisted of one 8-oz cream cheese, 1/4 lb. of butter, 1 tsp. vanilla, and one pound of confectioner's sugar. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe.

Very moist, light and fluffy. I was so glad it wasn't heavy with oil.Absolutely delicious...The only thing I added was a bit of nutmeg for some extra spice. I baked it in a 9x13 pan for about 45 minutes.This was a hit today for Mother's Day diner. Thank you so much for this recipe, it's a keeper!

I just hate it when someone rates a recipe that they've changed, sometimes EXTENSIVELY, so when I am weighing whether I want to make something, I can't decide if I like the recipe or not from the review. That said (!), I made muffins with this recipe, and, after reading up on other carrot cake recipes before deciding on this one, added a little nutmeg with the cinnamon. Mmmmmmmmm. Good. I've never made carrot cake or muffins before, and these were a HIT. I brought them with my kids to a friends, and all kids gobbled these up as well as the adults. Without any icing -- just accompanied by milk. This is a definite "make again" recipe. Easy and delish. Thanks for posting.
