Wow, I was just going through my recipes and realized that I never got around to rating this one. It is amazing as is, I however have been playing with it a little just to make it a little more guilt free. I now make it with only 1c. of sugar and have replaced 2/3 of the oil with unsweetened applesauce. I reduced the oil a bit each time so maybe we haven't noticed because of that but it is still certainly extremely moist and sweet enough, especially when topped with a good cream cheese frosting. I seem to remember another reviewer complaining about the texture. Make sure to use the to use the small holes on the grater for the carrots, they should turn out very juicy this way. I also boil the raisins in apple juice for a few minutes then let them sit in the hot juice until I am ready to add them to the recipe...nice and plump and juicy this way. I have had so many compliments on this recipe, always a treat to bring this one to the table. Thanks so much for a great recipe, I've been looking for a keeper for years and this is definately it!
