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 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!

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!

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!
