I didn't have any pumpkin but I did have two cans of carrots so I thought, "Why not?" I first drained the carrots then dumped them in the bowl and beat the heck out of them with my electric mixer. I then decided since I was already experimenting I added some chopped walnuts. I was worried I didn't have enough moisture since I had NO idea if the amount of carrots I now had was equal to a can of pumpking and the walnuts would soak some up too, I added 3 medium eggs. I followed someone else's suggestion of baking it in a bundt pan and did the sour cream glaze. It came out great!!! It wasn't as carroty as carrot cake would be but my husband and grown son have been fighting over who gets the biggest pieces. Next time I will try it as it should be. I bet it is just as good. Thanks for the recipe!*** 2nd, 3rd... times around... I used an electric mixer each time I made this and had NO problems mixing. I followed the recipe exactly the 2nd time and the texture was not as good. The 3rd and subsequent times I added an egg or two and it was GREAT!!! I have used a bundt pan each time and it turns out lovely and rises just fine.
