      I thought this recipe was absolutely perfect!! This was my first carrot cake ever, and I loved it. It comes out very dense and rich, and very flavorful! I made it for my baby's 1st birthday. I did make some changes, however. First, I left out the baking powder (I never use that stuff) and used 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda instead. Also, I put the carrots (8 large = 4 cups) into the food processor instead of grating and they did well in the cake. I ended up using 3.5 cups of carrots and 1.5 cups of pecans because I love pecans so much. I added 1/2 cup soaked raisins. I also used two circular pans instead of bundt, and cooked on 375 for 45 minutes. After cooling, I cut both into two layers and lightly frosted a 4-layer carrot cake. The frosting recipe had way too much sugar so I mixed softened cream cheese w/ honey and vanilla and beat w/ a hand beater. Not sure of the measurements; I just added honey until the consistency was good for icing. I will make this recipe again and I think I'll try ground 1 cup of ground oats and 1 cup whole wheat flour instead of the white flour.

      I enjoyed this cake very much. it has a nice honey flavour without being too overpowering or sweet and the pecans abd the spice gave it a nice flavour too. The cake was a bit too moist for my liking. Also, a typo in the instructions, where it asks for vanilla essence.... twice, but brandy extract is the ingredient ?

      I had an RSC dinner party with friends and made this cake for dessert. We are all carrot cake lovers and liked the amount of carrots and texture of this cake, but thought the honey was a bit over-powering. When making this cake, I had a few problems with the directions. First the ingredients called for brandy extract, but the instruction said to add vanilla. I added the vanilla. Secondly, the amount of icing is enough to frost a three layer cake. I had way too much icing left over. Next time this cake is made, I will cut the amount of honey in half and the amount of frosting in half or just make a cream cheese drizzle for the top.
