Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2013
I took this to a potluck, and everyone loved it. I read a few of the many reviews and added my own touch. I used 1 cup of brown sugar in place of the white. I added a 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. I used the 8 oz package of matchstick carrots, which was a real time saver. I put them in a bowl and microwaved them for a few minutes, so they were still a little crisp. For the frosting, i used the cream cheeese/greek yogurt combo as it has less fat. The result was a good, but not overly sweet frosting. I will make this cake again!

Best Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
Very good recipe. I was looking for a buttercream that was not overly sweet. I changed it just a bit. I softened but did not completely melt the butter. As I saw others mention clumps, I put the sugar and cocoa into a sifter before adding it to the butter. After adding the vanilla, i put a tablespoon of Kahlua into a measuring cup before adding milk to equal 1/3 cup. The frosting has a light mocha flavor.
