I only changed a couple of things in the cake...instead of 3/4 cup vegetable oil I used 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil. I didn't use buttermilk, but used the old buttermilk substitute of 1 T vinegar to a cup of milk in both the cake and the glaze. I also put only 1 cup nuts (pecans), 1/2 c raisins, and threw in 1/2 c shredded coconut. Delicious!

The only thing I changed was that I substituted the drained pineapple juice for part of the buttermilk. Delicious and moist, a wonderful texture. Topped with the recommended cream cheese frosting (another winner). Thanks, Kittencal! I'm having fun perusing your website. Goodness!!

I did not make the cake (sounds really good) but I was looking for a different glaze and saw this one. DELICIOUS! I made a from scratch yellow butter bundt cake and wanted to do something different for a glaze or frosting other than chocolate. I tell you what, this glaze would be SUPER as an ice cream butterscotch topping! Love it! Next time I will try the cake with the glaze! Thank you very much :)

Yum!!! This was a definite hit in our house - everyone had seconds and then some. I served it with just the glaze and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing another outstanding recipe Kittencal!

cooking for boys!!! April 27, 2009

I must admit, I thought this was going to turn out to be a (3) star recipe, everything was so good by itself, but when put together, I found it was all just too sweet! I didn't think we'd be able to eat anymore of it! But, I found that the secret is letting it sit over night. The glaze is sooo good, it tastes like melted butterscotch candies. I only poured half of the glaze over the cake, because I was afraid that using all of it would make the cake too soggy. The other half went nicely over some vanilla ice cream . I also forgot to add the pineapple to the cake, so I used it in the frosting instead ... yum! Kittencal, how could I ever have doubted you? Everyone loved it! Loved it! Loved it!! LOVED IT!!!

Try this recipe!! It is the best carrot cake my family has ever tried. It is our new family recipe...it has replaced our great grandmothers. Make sure you use the maple flavor. We do not use the glaze, but we do use the creamy cream cheese frosting...also great.

Beautiful, beautiful cake! I don't care for icing so I just whipped some cream for the topping. It was delicious.

Nice change to traditional carrot cake. I made mine on a large cookie sheet and cooked it for 35 minutes and didn't have to tent it with foil. This makes it great for buffets and it worked like a dream!!! YUM.
