"A carrot cake that is moist, but not oily. The cream cheese frosting is delicious and does not form a crust."

I was seeking a recipe for a carrot cake that did not contain oil so when I saw this recipe, it appealed to me. I used a fresh carrot from the garden that was so largeand juicy, it was ideal. The cake froze well and proved to be a great winner with every person at the party making complimentary comments on the moisture level and the quality of the cream cheese topping
I made an apple cake recently that was too oily, so I liked the fact that this recipe uses butter instead of oil. However, I found the batter extremely dry and hard to stir. Mixing in the grated carrots was like kneading dough for bread. I had to use four times the amount of juice called for and it was still very hard to stir. I suppose it could have been because I used store-bought grated carrots, which are probably a little drier than freshly-grated carrots. The end result wasn't too bad, but I think I will try an oil-based recipe next time.
This is a delicious cake. It's very dense and moist. The icing is TO DIE FOR! I left the raisins out because of others' tastes, but I'm sure they would be delicious as well.
Excellent recipe! I used the juice of one fresh lemon instead of the orange juice. I did not have any problem at all with the batter being too thick. Be sure to thoroughly cream the butter and the sugars together -- this should take as much as 5 or 10 minutes using an electric beater. (The color will change visibly to a much lighter shade than it was when you started creaming.)
I followed the recipie as written and I actualy had success. My husband really enjoyed this carrot cake. It was my first attempt for this cake. I am pleased with the way it turned out. I made it in a spring form pan.
I love the fact that it uses raisins and walnuts, plus when I make it the cake is so moist and delicious
I found this cake way too dense for my tastes. I agree w/ a previous poster that it was very hard to stir and came out almost like a carrot "bread". I will not be making this again. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't the best carrot cake either.
Very disappointed compared to other carrot cake recipe that I could not find. This cake can be dry. I could tell by looking at the batter it was too dry so I added 1/2 can of crushed pineapple which helped. The icing recipe is a good one and especially since I added the other 1/2 of the can of pineapple. There are better recipes out there, I suggest you choose one.
