Absolutely delicious! Easy to make and full of flavor. I baked for 45 mins. in a glass pan and it was a little too long.

This was my first carrot cake that I made :) and followed this receipe! Turned out very tasty, little bit dry(well-not that moist as I wanted). But I think I didn't put enough oil, I also put half oil and half apple sauce. Also added ground nutmeg and ginger, since I like the taste of them in cakes usually :) frosting was awesome!!! This receipe is a keeper and I will definitely use it again :)

This is almost the same as the recipe I have from my Pillsbury cookoff cookbook. I love scratch cakes better than from a box and they don't take more than 5 minutes more to put together. The dry ingredients should be sifted together and I sift the flour before measuring. I don't like a very sweet cake so I usually cut the sugar in the frosting by half a cup.

Let me just say everyone in my house hates carrot cake (except me), especially with coconut. I made it and didn't tell anyone what was in it. Everyone has been raving about this cake, even after I told them what was in it! This is my go to carrot cake recipe...perfect in every way, cooking time is exact as well. Thanks for sharing!!

I discovered this recipe 8 years ago when I was searching for a carrot cake recipe for my husband's (then boyfriend's) birthday. I have made this carrot cake every year since! DH's birthday is tomorrow, so I am once again turning to my favorite recipe. The only change I make is to omit the nuts. Other than that, this carrot cake is perfect, always comes out moist and delicious. Thank you for sharing!
