Being the party pooper here and giving it only 4 stars. After reading the breathless reviews of how great this cake was going to be, thought I would make it for my husband's 35th b-day yesterday. It was a great cake, but not the best, the most delicious, the most penultimate ever, the take-me-to-the-moon cake I was expecting after reading the reviews. That carrot cake would have been made by the "Carrot Cake Man" in West Philadelphia, a type of cake I've been searching for years. In the end, hubby and guests liked it. I was less than impressed as I like a denser carrot cake and expected to swoon with delicious delight. No swooning. Mine looked just exactly like the picture here, but I didn't add nuts. Grated the carrots not only the smallest grate and not one that we would use for cheese, but the medium side. That worked out well as there was virtually no carrot juice and yet there was still texture. Good cake and one that will certainly get the baker compliments, but I won't be making this particular recipe again. Back on the quest for the perfect carrot cake on allrecipes site!
