I love whole wheat baked goods and I love carrot cake so this recipe was a wonderful find. My friends marvelled at its delicious perfection and my prowess with the oven, but I shrugged and said, "It was easy!"

This was delicious. We also appreciate the addition of whole wheat.

What a fantastic carrot cake recipe! I love it! I doubled the recipe (make sure you use 4 TBS of pineapple juice instead of 2. The converter doesn't make the change for you.) and made a huge batch of muffins. I wanted to make the cream cheese frosting but it doesn't say which cookbook it's in- evelyn/athens has several. So I just did a regular search and came up with a great one. These are so yummy!
