This was good and easy to make but it didn't come out looking like a carrot cake to me.I followed the recipe as written. I;m not sure if I cut my carrots up small enough. The cake had a good taste to it but it just didn't look like a carrot cake to me.
This is a wonderful recipe; I made them into muffins instead, and added Â½ cup of well drained crushed pineapple, Â¼ cup walnuts, and a tablespoon of sour cream. I really great Treat!!
This is great for a lower fat carrot cake. I didn't have any eggs so I used 3 egg whites, a dash of allspice instead of nutmeg and whole wheat flour. I had to bake it for 10 more minutes maybe because I used a small bread pan so it was a bit taller. I used a cream cheese frosting and it was perfect. On it's own it may be a bit bland.
