    LilPinkieJ's Note:

    A very moist cake. This cake is delicious served with whipped cream or frost with a mixture of chevre whipped with honey and vanilla to taste. Using yogurt in baking produces a very tender, almost melting crumb. This delicious carrot cake should be allowed to ripen for 24 hours before serving. ** Maple Sugar is super sweet, twice as sweet as regular granulated sugar. It is what is made after making maple syrup. I would sub brown sugar out for it if you cannot find it. I would try mixing half white sugar and half brown sugar. Maybe even adding a little extra white.

      I had a couple of problems with this recipe. I did vary it a bit. I only had a 1/4 cup of maple sugar left from my stash, so in addition, I used 3/4 cup brown sugar along with 1/4 cup of coconut oil. I expected a cake, though. The batter was the consistency of brownies. I wasn't pouring batter, I had to spoon it out. If I had been making a sweet bread or muffins this would have been fine. Also, I baked this for 30 minutes. One hour would have been way too much. To be honest, we tasted this fresh from the oven but will see how if it "ripens" tomorrow. I think I will add a vanilla icing to it also to give it some moisture and sweetness. The base recipe with a few adjustments will yield a great cake.

      My DH has an enormous sweet tooth w/no sense of portion control, so I opted to make a 1/3 version of this recipe (easy to do) & baked it in a 7.5-in rd Pyrex baking dish which yielded 4 generous portions ~ even for him. I made it as written using the mix of brown & white sugar you suggested. For the most part, we feel icing a good cake is overkill, but I opted to take the middle ground between serving it plain or iced. I had yogurt left from the recipe, mixed it w/some cream cheese & sweetened the mix w/powd sugar to make a lovely glaze & drizzled it over the cake. All that said, this wonderful carrot cake is moist, full-flavored, textural + as good as any restaurant or commercially-made high-priced carrot cake I have ever had & I doubt I will ever buy 1 again. Kudos to you for sharing this great recipe w/us. It is a *keeper* for sure. :-)
