My husband loves carrot cake but does not like coconut, so when I found this recipe, with nearly 5 stars & almost 4,400 people, I thought it must be good but sadly it was not. The texture for one was a bit grainy & it was void of spice. When I think of carrot cake, I think of a spice cake flavor & this had no spice at all. I am really not sure why so many liked this recipe, I know many on here alter recipes & then rate them according to their alterations, perhaps this is what has happened with this recipe. (I did not read the reviews, should have I guess, I usually do) I do a lot of cooking, baking, etc so I did not make a mistake, the recipe turned out fine just null in void of flavor. Bottom line, if you are going to make this recipe & like flavor, add a lot more spice & I prefer raisins in my carrot cake as well. As for me, I will be looking for another carrot cake recipe & will be reading the reviews (as I usually do) Happy baking!!!
