Wonderful!!!!! I followed recipe exactly as given. I think this is better than Cracker Barrel. I keep my cake in the fridge so it stays cool and moist longer. Made this for Labor Day get together, made another the next Sunday.This recipe is definitely a keeper.Thanks to whomever placed this online. Lisa K.
I am rating from my husband's point of view. He loved this cake--I made yesterday for his B-Day. The icing (also for me) is absolutely delicious. But VERY filling cake.
OH COURTLY Girl...I could kiss you. We love Cracker Barrel's Carrot Cake and this tastes exactly like it. My hubby and I were in heaven. I took it to a meeting and everyone would take a "sliver" and then come back (several times) for more saying, "This carrot cake is awesome". I have tried many carrot cake recipes trying to find "THE" Carrot Cake recipe and my search is over. I have tried many recipes and either they are too "cake like" or too dense and oily. This is the "just right" combo of moist, chockful, spice perfect carrot cake. Thank you. Really. :-)
Absolutely FABULOUS!!!!! Tastes exactly like Cracker Barrel. Made last weekend and it was a huge hit. I will be making again this weekend. Is now my go-to recipe for carrot cake. Left out coconut because kids and I arent a fan but hubby said it was still awesome. Look no further, this is THE recipe for carrot cake. Thanks so much for posting!!!
We love this cake! I drained the pineapple the first time and it came out dry oops! But followed the recipe to the T the next time and wow :) Just like cracker barrel
