      I chose this recipe because it had less oil in than most. I actually used half applesauce and it still turned out with a great dense carrot cake texture. I baked the cakes in 2 9" pans and sprinkled 1/4 cup of chopped pecans on each layer. I used my own cream cheese frosting recipe, but the cake was absolutely delicious. Loved it!

      This is the best carrot cake recipe I have ever tried. I don't eat dairy but I do bake for my family a lot. This was a very straight forward recipe, I followed the recipe exactly as it's posted. I was told that the icing came out too sweet. I used the entire 10 oz of powdered sugar since I didn't have anyone around to pre-taste the icing and I didn't want to make it "not sweet enough". Thank you for posting!

      This carrot cake is really at it's best. We could live off of this. Last time I made it I forgot to put the oil in I also had no cream cheese for the frosting so I omitted it, my family still had no problem gobbiling it down!
