I have just finished making this recipe exactly as written. It is a lovely moist cake, the Grand Marnier adds a delightful difference to the flavour. Thank you, this one is a 'keep'.

Made in Bundt pan using Cointreau, extra toasted crushed pecans and a handful of sultanas and dark raisins. FABULOUS! Not overly sweet with moist most excellent nongreasy texture. Definately a kepper recipe. TY!

I loved this cake - I love baking with liquors and couldn't wait to try it. The orange flavor is an unexpected but nice surprise in a carrot cake. Now it is my new favorite carrot cake recipe! I substituted cake flour and baked it in 9" rounds but changed nothing else. It is definitetly worth 5 stars.

Excellent cake! Very moist with the oranges, carrot & coconut. I made as instructed, including the oil & Grand Marnier, but didn't need the orange juice in the cake as I already had the proper measurement after processing the oranges. We have family in town & this recipe was an awesome way to end a prime rib meal. I did borrow Susie's idea of making it a double layer just because it was for a fancy meal on their last night here. Thanks for sharing a great creation, Deb! Made for a Cookathon in memory of Judy~Jude.

I made this for a birthday so baked it in round pans. It was lovely frosted and served on a cake pedestal. I used additional finely chopped nuts to garnish the sides. I found the flavor more "orangey" than a traditional carrot cake flavor. We did enjoy it though and I would make it again. The cake was moist, but held together well. I did appreciate the sub mentioned in your recipe for Grand Marnier and used it. Thank you for sharing your RSC creation!

We really enjoyed this carrot cake. The orange flavor came through which gave it a different taste then the traditional carrot cake. It was very moist and very tasty. I will be making this cake again! It was DH approved! lol. The frosting was very yummy too. All in all a great creation for RSC!!!
