    MizEmerilLagasse's Note:

    This is a great recipe that I came up with for my Aunt who just found out the she was a diabetic. She was very sad when she found out about it, so I made her this cake to try and cheer her up. It worked. :)

      I made this for a customer and it looked o.k. I followed the recipe exactly. I was told that the cake is gummy in the middle. So my search continues. O.k. now I have gone to see the cake for myself and it was not gummy, but my customer did not like it.

      I am diabetic and this is a great treat!! The only change I had was to use Splenda Brown Sugar blend. I incorporated some of the pineapple juice into the batter. I made this carrot cake on the weekend and took it to a family dinner and the whole cake was gobbled up. Delicious, moist, very easy to mix together and came out of the pan with no problems. Will most definitely make again and again. This is a keeper. Thank you.

      The recipe said to reserve the juice from the pineapple but didn't say what to do with it (so I drank it!) The cake was dense almost like a pound cake. It isn't that sweet but makes a good cake to eat while drinking your coffee in the morning. At first you think it is pretty bland but for some reason want to eat more after the first piece is gone.
