Excellent recipe. I made a few changes as written by another reviewer and it was the best carrot cake I have ever had. I did the following: 1.) used 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup white sugar 2.) added an extra teaspoon of vanilla extract 3.) added 1 8oz. can of crushed pineapple (I squeezed out most of the juice before adding it) 4.) Added 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg 5.) added 1 extra teaspoon of cinnamon 6.) used 3/4 cup canola oil and 1/2 cup applesauce. The result came out incredibly delicious - the cake was very flavorful and moist. For the frosting, I only used 3.5 cups of powdered sugar, and it was more than sweet enough, with a nicely balanced cream cheese vs. sweet flavor. I can't wait to make this again.
