I made this for my son's second birthday sans nuts, and I added some grated carrots. Our friends just went crazy for this. Fantastic with cream cheese frosting. Wonderful recipe!
Made this over the weekend, & it's really a nice, moist & yummy cake...added 3 eggs, turned out perfectly. Next time I'll add some shredded carrots. Great recipe!
AWESOME carrot cake!! I followed another's comments and used 3 eggs instead of 4 (I probably should have used 2 - it fell apart a little); I used a 9x13 pan and baked for 40 minutes; and lastly I replaced the raisins with shredded carrots. My family loved it! And they're used to the fancy bakery carrot cakes! Cream cheese frosting - a must. THANK YOU!!!
Great recipe! I used milk instead of water and added 1/2 cup shredded carrots. I made a 2 layer cake with 8" pans. For frosting I mixed 1 8oz tub of cool whip and 1 can of cream cheese frosting.
I also added shredded carrots, and walnuts and raisin. Great!!!!!!!!
I made as posted except that I only used 3 eggs, which is enough, and used chopped walnuts instead of pecans. Really tasty cake, moist, enjoyed by everyone!
Made this for my father's birthday on New Year's day, he loved it! Incredibly easy and really pretty. Frosted with Cream Cheese Frosting . Thanks for sharing!
Excellent recipe and very easy to make. I made it in a 13x9 pan and added the Cake Mix Extender (Cake Mix Extender) to make it larger and fluffier. Sliced it in 1/2 horizontally and added a internal row of frosting, and topped it with the top 1/2 of the cake and another top row of frosting. Very good and easy.
Thanks for this quick carrot cake recipe. I needed to bake a carrot cake for my co-worker's birthday, but I had very little time. I have a reputation as the office cook, so I needed something that didn't seem like I cheated, but I needed it to be quick. This fit the bill. I used shredded coconut instead of the raisins. I baked it in a 13X9 pan and frosted it with a cream cheese frosting.
This is a great tasting, easy, very moist cake. I made it for DH's birthday, in a 9x13 pan, topped it with canned cream cheese frosting mixed with drained pineapple and warmed in the microwave. It was delicious! I served it at a family reunion, and everyone loved it!
