    Vseward (Chef~V)'s Note:

    This is Grandma Great's recipe. What makes this cake different from other's posted here is additional coconut and walnuts in the glaze and the technique of broiling the cake with the glaze. The amounts are a little different too. This is by far our favorite carrot cake. If you don't want a cream cheese frosting, this glaze is a perfect compliment to a moist but very dense cake. Do not Beat the cake mix, stir by hand - very important!

      This was truly excellent! It made a nice, rustic-style carrot cake that was dense and delightful. The buttermilk glaze was a nice departure, too. And, given all the sugar in this recipe, the cake was surprisingly not too sweet, but just right. I will be making this again. Made for My Three Chefs Tag Game.
