    h jones's Note:

    EXTRA moist carrot. very dense mixture does not raise much but is absoultly FAB. I prepare in mini loafs and sharing with friend(I am the only one in the house who like Carrot cake)but everyone else is gradually trying this recipe and liking it. I omit the raisins and nuts and does great(if you ever wonder. Cuts very easily due to its denseness. Unfrosted "bars" Great for breakfast, no crumbs travels well in the car for on the go mornings.

      This is delicious! My mother was skeptical about a "healthy cake" but was quick to change her mind. I did however, skip the pineapple, double the nuts, and substitute 2/3 cup of the 1 1/3 cup sugar for 1/3 honey and 1/3 agave nectar. Just for personal preference. Tell me if I'm really missing out on anything.

      This cake is wonderful! Carrot cake is my daughters favorite and we have been looking for a healthy one that is good. I will be making it often.

      VERY, VERY NICE CARROT CAKE, & that comes from one who knows carrot cake! Hands down more healthy than my own recipe (which I'll continue to make now & then!), & it is extremely good WITHOUT the frosting! Some carrot cakes NEED the frosting because the cake itself isn't very moist, but not so this one! Very tasty, very moist! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]
