"This Carrot Cake is superior. My family and friends told me it was the best carrot cake they have ever had. I used baby food carrots instead of peeling, cooking, & pureeing and it came out absolutely fabulous. I would recommned making sure you use the 9 inch spring form pans. I used on huge spring form and had to cook the cake for almost 2 hours. It didn't burn, but the edges were a little browner than I would have liked. The frosting - oh my goodness! is the best."
"Very good cake. Moist and not to spicy. Some carrot has all kind of spice in it but not this one. The cinnamon amount was perfect. I did not puree the carrot. I just used a very fine grater and grated the carrots. It came out just fine. Oh, and the frosting is to die for. I licked the bowl he he he. Thanks for posting the recipe."
"I have never liked carrot cake, hate the pieces of carrot in it. But this one I tried becuse the carrots were pureed. Incredible! I first made it 3 years ago for Thanksgiving and everyone went nuts for it. It is now a holiday staple at our house or whenever I get the urge to make one. I only have one springform pan so I just use my regular cake pans and it comes out fine. And this is the only cream cheese frosting I like to most are gross."
"I've made this cake many times over the past 2 decades and I would have hoped to have memorized it by now. Instead of pulling out my trusty Silver Palate Cookbook, I googled the recipe and came up with this one. Unfortunately, I didn't verify that the amounts of the ingredients were correct until the cake was already in the oven. Corn Oil according the the book is 1 1/2 cups, not 1. I hope and pray that the missing 1/2 cup of oil won't make a difference. :("
"I seldom take the time to write reviews on anything, but this is worthy! I made this for my grandson's birthday party...the guests went crazy for it. Great taste, texture, complexity; perfect in every way! (My son's dog liked it too...while I was letting cake cool, he ate an entire layer! GRRR!)"
