Great cake! I made this same cake after finding it on another recipe web site. It is absolutely incredible. The only thing I found different in your recipe is the last step in which you say to "fill with lightly sweetwened cream cheese filling and frost with butter cream frosting". How do you "fill" the cake? Additionally, I left out the raisins, just because I don't care for them and I used an Allspice Cream Cheese frosting. Each time I've made this cake I've had lots of requests for the recipe. It truly is scrumptious.
Hi CC, the filling is the 'frosting' that goes between the layers.....
This cake is OUT of this world for taste and it keeps WELL; I have tried many carrot cake ones;this is the best by far..
Phenomenal!!! Just made it tonight - super moist, not too sweet - and everyone loves it! Somehow soaking the carrots in the brown sugar ahead of time made them not so chewy but more soft and yummy. Awesome job!!
Excellent, super moist, carrot cake! I omitted the raisins because I made this for my dad, and he didn't want raisins in it. I also used canola oil, instead of vegetable oil. It turned out GREAT!! I would definitely make this recipe again! Thanks!
This is a wonderful cake! Five stars just isn't enough! I made it last night for a co-workers' birthday today. I baked it in my 12 x 18 x 3 pan for 45 minutes -- it rose nice and high -- cooled it and then frosted it with my cream cheese frosting. It was gone in no time. Everyone asked for the recipe. Thank you for a wonderful recipe that I will definitely make again!
Yum!!!! My family is allergic to nuts, so I substituted a cup of coconut instead. It was fabulous! I am making a big batch today for the bottom layer of a wedding cake. I am sure it will be a hit!
The very best carrot cake I have ever eaten. Thanks so much for this recipe. And you are right get use to shredding carrots. With the left over pineapple I added to the frosting and it was delicious.
YEAH!!! This is the carrot cake I have been searching for since the bakery went out of business by us! It was GREAT!! I used a quarter sheet pan for this instead of the 2-10 inch pans and it was perfect! EVERYONE LOVED it!! Thank you so much!!
I made this cake for my mother's birthday and everyone raved that this was the best carrot cake ever. I soaked the raisins in the pineapple juice while the carrots were soaking in the brown sugar and frosted the cake with an orange cream cheese frosting. It was wonderful! The only carrot cake recipe I will ever use.
