"Moist and delicious. The cranberries are a nice change from the raisins most people use. Use your favorite cream cheese frosting to ice this cake."

Excellent - love this cake. Substitute unsweetened apple sauce for the oil and it is still excellent and moist.
This was just ok... I made exact except I omitted the nuts and cranberries because the birthday boy didn't want them in, I felt it was very spongy like, not overly impressed, probably will keep looking for the perfect carrot cake recipe.
Awesome!!! Love cranberries and especially loved this dessert. Thank you
Really good. I put in no mayo, but added an unmeasured amount of of applesauce - probably about a cup- and it turned out great.
Delicious carrot cake. I was a little unsure about using mayonnaise rather than oil, but decided to try it anyway. This cake baked up very nice and even, no dip in the middle like some carrot cakes that use oil. We enjoyed the addition of the dried cranberries. I frosted with a cream cheese icing. We had this for my son and father's birthday and everyone enjoyed it. Thanks jowolf2 for sharing your recipe.
Excellent excellent excellent!
I made this for my Boyfriends birthday, I didn't have any pecans but used hazelnuts instead. OMG was perfectly moist and great. I used cream cheese frosting, but wasn't even needed.
Very tasty and moist..soft of spice cakey even..definately use cream cheese frosting though..
