I followed the recipe almost exactly as described (Used walnuts rather then pecans), I haven't made the frosting yet, the cake has a good flavor but a strange after taste, I think it might be the baking powder. When I make carrot cake again I am definitely going to find a recipe that doesn't use baking powder, or just omit it all together, because that after taste is just too strange for me. Hopefully the taste of the frosting masks it. I used 2 round 9" pans and it flowed over, and got all over the oven, It also sank in the middle, I think it was too dense, I might cut back on the oil next time. Also do not attempt to take the cake out of the pan after only 10 min it will crumble, wait 20-30 min. :/
