I don't know why it said to use a bundt pan, especially since the picture shows a round cake pan...so I used a 8x8 glass pan, and it took FOREVER for this to finish. When it was FINALLY cooked through, the outside had a very burnt look and feel, almost carmelized. I had to reduce the heat of the oven for the last 1/2 hour or so just to get it cooked through without completely ruining it. I think it should be specified how long to cook it in 2 round cake pans, not a bundt. The flavor itself of the cake wasn't that great either, even after I cut off the burnt edges. I also thought that it had a bit too much carrot in it?
Also, I used my own frosing- 16 oz. cream cheese softened, 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar, and 1 tsp. vanilla. The frosting was the best part! I used the leftover frosting on some yellow cake cupcakes I made the next day.
I wouldn't make this one again. I'll keep searching for "the perfect carrot cake" recipe. My search does NOT end here.
