    Hi. Do you think the quantity of this cake recipe would be enough to make two ring tin cakes and a small loaf cake? . I’m wanting to make a number 30 for my daughters birthday.

    YEAH!!! This is the carrot cake I have been searching for since the bakery went out of business by us! It was GREAT!! I used a quarter sheet pan for this instead of the 2-10 inch pans and it was perfect! EVERYONE LOVED it!! Thank you so much!!

    I made this cake for my mother's birthday and everyone raved that this was the best carrot cake ever. I soaked the raisins in the pineapple juice while the carrots were soaking in the brown sugar and frosted the cake with an orange cream cheese frosting. It was wonderful! The only carrot cake recipe I will ever use.

    Great moist cake. Made it for my mothers 50th Birthday. I soaked the raisins in hot water while i had the carrot and sugar set aside. Also after setting the carrot aside with the sugar i had a lot of liquid in the btw of the bowl that i removed. Would be using this recipe as my main carrot cake recipe from now on!
