    I don't know what I did wrong, but my cake turned out awful! After reading some of the reviews, I decided to use a 13 x 9 pan & I followed the instructions someone had written to do so. I also substituted applesauce for half the oil. The texture of the cake reminded me of shoo fly pie. It was not cake-like at all. If anyone might know what I did wrong, I would appreciate knowing.

    Loved this! It is so light very different from your original dense cake. Yum, yum, YUMMY!

    This will be the only carrot cake I make from now on, it was moist and wonderful. I've also heard you can substitute the baby food for applesauce, sweet potato or pumpkin baby food.
