EXCELLENT! i made it for easter and it was a big hit. people who said they don't like carrot cake said it was awesome.
I was looking for something very quick and easy (which it was) that the kids would eat (which they didn't). There was a total lack of flavor...my apologies to the person who submitted this one...but maybe all those spices are there for a reason, because this was very bland and the texture of the cake was just "wierd"...I don't know how else to describe it. I took it to a party and ended up tossing most of the cake when we came home. We will not make this one again, but will go back to the tried and true recipe with all of the spices and the crushed pineapple and coconut.
a simple recipie all will love.You can't go wrong with this one!!!
This recipe is very close to the one my mom was "famous" for. I used all-purpose flour and did not add baking powder or soda and it is just fine. For those who do not like a lot of "spice", this is a great recipe. I only used 1 teaspoon and it is just right for us. I also did not add nuts this time. Yummy!
This is an excellant carrot cake. I used less oil 1 3/4 cups and added raisins as my kids love the raisins as well. Then we added 1 cup of original unsweetened applesauce. This was awesome and it was like Grandma's recipe. Great Job.
I've made this cake on several occasions and I love it. I am not a fan of raisins or pineapple in carrot cake, and have found this recipe to be a great stand by. People love it when I bring it to parties, and I've always found it to be easy to make with fantastic results. I sometimes add a bit more spices to it, but depends on my mood.
I'm not sure what the reviewers who found the texture to be weird or gross did, but for me, this recipe has always been moist and delicious.
I LOVED this cake! WOW! My kids couldn't even wait until it was frosted. It was super sweet and moist. I think the problem some of the others had was that they may have missed the self-rising flour. I did! I had everything mixed and had to go back and add salt and baking powder. (3 tsp baking powder & 1 tsp salt) I also baked this in a 9x13 pan and it worked well. Great recipe, Diane! Thanks!
this recipe was quite possibly the grossest and weirdest tasting and looking "cakes" (and i use that term loosely) that i have ever made, tasted, and seen. eeww. sorry to the person who invented this cake, but it is lacking ingredients and its not a good thing! they're there for a reason...TASTE.
