I love carrot cake and this recipe is tops. Don't forget to add the cream cheese icing.

This was quite good; I made as directed but substituted applesauce for the cooking oil. It is moist but perhaps a little bland. A good basic recipe but doesn't have the "wow" factor. I may make it again but would probably experiment with spices to give it a little more oomph. I thought it definitely did need icing so topped it with cream cheese icing, which complimented it nicely.

No need to frost this delicious cake! I was looking for a carrot cake recipe that had no crushed pineapple and this was perfect! I used brown sugar, and added pecans and vanilla. Now I can't stop eating it!
