The carrot cake with the cream cheese icing was awsome! I made it for the girls at work, and it was a big hit.The only thing I did change was I put in a pinch of allspice. I had enought batter to make one loaf and some cupcakes.
I did not use this recipe for the cake but I did use the recipe for the cream cheese frosting. We didn't like it. BUT, I will say this. In trying to cut our some fat/calories I used fat free cream cheese and I think that was probably the problem. So, I would recommend following the exact ingredients in case it was because of using the fat free stuff!
Great flavor and texture, spices just right and lemon juice and zest in icing perfect. I reduced the sugar by a half cup and added one-quarter cup sweetened shredded coconut. I also added 1 cup raisins microwaved for three minutes in two cups water with orange extract and sugar and then drained. Recipe exactly filled a 9*13 cake pan.
I made this for my birthday cake and LOVED it. Used the exact recipe. Had no problem and I'd never made a cake from scratch before. Awesome!
So far I've made this Carrot Cake 3 times and everyone has raved about it... making me a complete star in the kitchen!! I did take some suggestions from other recipes. For example I divided the sugar (1 cup white and 1 cup dark brown instead of 2 c. of all white sugar) and used slightly less crushed pineapple. I'm going to make it again tomorrow but use a total of 3/4 c. canola oil and 1/4 c. chunky applesauce instead of the 1 1/4 c. oil. I'm going to increase the cinnamon to 2 t. For the icing I will use only use 2 c. confectioner's sugar and no lemon. But I will add 1/4 c. chopped pecans. I really love Carrot Cake!!!
Great carrot cake and love a cake with pineapple.. it gives it a really nice flavor. NOTE: Magic baking powder is available in Canada and not the US. I believe you can go online to order it, but I used regular baking powder in this recipe and had no issues.
Made this recipe for my family and they just loved it. They asked if this could be the carrot cake I make for them from now on.
Don't let only 4 reviews scare you away from this fabulous recipe!! Best carrot cake ever!! Easy to do in the bundt pan! So moist & delicious.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
