I made this for someone's bday whose favorite is carrot cake. I've never liked carrot cake but I actually liked this. I did half applesauce/salflower oil and added just a little nutmeg. I covered it up with foil as soon as it came out of the oven to retain all the moisture and I loved how it was so orange from all the carrots. Update-I stil had carrots left over so decided to make a loaf (i halved the rcipe)for my dad using the same recipe. I wanted to make it healthier so I subbed all applesauce, used whole wheat flour, 1/2 brown sugar, 1tsp vanilla, and a generous dose of cinnamon and nutmeg. When it was almost done I poked holes on the top and drizzled 2 tsp of melted butter with cinnamon on top. I actually liked it better with the whole wheat flour.
