Made this, based on all of the 5 star reviews. While it was cooking, I read over some of the least favorable reviews, which then had me worried! I made these into cupcakes. I sprayed the tin with baker's joy, and filled each almost full. I made 24 cupcakes and had enough batter left over for 3 or 4 more. I didn't have any buttermilk, so I added 3/4 tsp lemon juice. I tasted these right out of the oven since I was so worried about them, and they were wonderful! I don't even like carrot cake, I was making these for a relative. I baked them at 400 for 10 minutes, then reduced heat to 350 and cooked for 20-25 min more (until top springs back and toothpick comes out clean). Mine were NOT too heavy, and definitely not wet. I did buy a package of grated carrots, and then I chopped them up with my hand chopper. I didn't want that big of pieces of carrot in it. They all cooked up fine and weren't crunchy at all. Only thing I would change next time is to add a little more spice. Maybe a 1/2 tsp ginger and a 1/2 tsp nutmeg.
