As advertised, moist, delicious and light! And obviously, one look at the recipe tells you this is not what we're accustomed to calling carrot cake, so you do have to toss out those preconceived notions about carrot cake to rate this appropriately. I knew I wanted to use a glaze on it, so I took the advice of other reviewers and reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. To be honest, if I was going glaze-less, this would not have been sweet enough for me, and the glaze proved to make it (almost) too sweet for my tastes. So! Next time, I'll follow the cake recipe exactly, and maybe just dust with powdered sugar for effect. I liked the almonds, but I might try using ground walnuts next time instead - I think they'd go better (maybe preconceived notions of carrot cake, but it sounds like a good idea to me!). Thanks for sharing this unique and tasty recipe, Corwynn!
