Carrot Cake III
I do not recommend this recipe at all. I did NOT alter the recipe at all. I made it exactly as written. I am not a beginner baker and have been baking over a decade. First of all, it comes out of the oven pretty unappealing: very oily/greasy looking. The edges of the cake were more bubbly and the centre of the cake fell after while in the oven. My oven temperature is accurate, and all my ingredients are fresh, so I'm not sure why it happened. Not only that, it tasted like baking soda (my measurements were accurate), and weirdly also tasted like egg. I know that I mixed my ingredients very well prior so there's explanation for the egg flavour. The icing was delicious though I did use one less cup of icing sugar, but that's minor. Oh and, don't even think about trying to take it out of the pan after cooling only 10 minutes... what a nightmare. Even if you grease and flour the pan like I did, it still broke apart and made a huge crumbly mess. I'm made dozens of cakes over the years and never had issues flipping a cake out of a pan like this. I think there's issues with the amount of oil used in this recipe, some others have used applesauce and I think that's a good idea.

Delicious! No need to make any changes, these are so good as is. And pretty easy to make as well!

Mom's Pumpkin Pie
I made the pie exactly as written. It was very good, and the only reason I'm not giving it a 5 is because it wasn't the absolute BEST pumpkin pie I've ever had - but it was good and I would recommend it. :O)
