Can I give it 6 stars? This is by far the best cake I've ever had, period (all flavors included). My 68 year old father said he'd had none better, and it was my first time making carrot cake, so that's a testament to how easy to follow this recipe is. Like others here, I used 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown. Also I cut the oil to 3/4 cup and used 1/2 cup applesauce to supplement, and added a little nutmeg into the mix. If there is any problem with this cake it is that the total thing (with frosting) I calculated out to be about 7600 Calories. Split it to 8 pieces, that's just under 1000 Calories a slice, or in other words, 50-75% of one's daily recommended intake. Because of that this cake will only be made for very special occasions, otherwise I would have it weekly. Oh god it is so MOIST! n_n
