    vitalev's Note:

    This cake is moist and not-too-sweet. It bakes in a 9-inch pan, so it is perfect for smaller group gatherings. The sprinkling of nuts and brown sugar provides a nice accent.

      Made as directed and added 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg to the batter and also used a mix of walnuts/pecans. I was afraid of spill-over during baking so I distributed the batter between two 9" round cake pans that went halfway up the sides. They were done in 20 minutes. The cakes did not rise, so it is possible to cook this using just one 9" pan. For the icing, I doubled the cream cheese and used only 1 cup confectioners' sugar and it was perfectly sweet with a definitive taste of cream cheese. I replaced the topping with colored sprinkles because I used up all the nuts I had into the cake. This cake is moist and not-to-sweet just as the description states. Simple to put together, this is a very nice carrot cake.
