This recipe is ok as is, but 5 stars with changes. I sub walnuts for the pecans, sub brown sugar for white, add 1/2 t. nutmeg, sprinkle the walnuts on (not in) the icing, halve the sugar in the icing, and sub applesauce for 1/2 c. of the oil. I like carrot cakes that are spicy and simple, so I avoid the recipes that have raisins, pineapple and other oddball additions. Oh, I also increase the cinnamon by 1 t., but I do that in virtually all my baking. A bundt pan is done in 45-50 minutes depending on your oven.
