I should have read more of the reviews before trying this carrot cake recipe. The cake comes out WAY too oily!! If
i made it again I'd reduce the amount of oil used (maybe 3/4 cup) and substitute something like apple sauce to maintain the moisture. Moist is great, but there are better ways to achieve a moist cake without resorting to so much oil. Also I'd increase the amount of sugar in the cake batter (the cake comes out barely sweet), maybe use 2 cups rather than a cup and a half. I'm not one for really sugary cakes, but this one needs a bit more sugar.
If you had to make major adjustments to the recipe, how can you rate it five stars? Please rate the recipe as it appears, not how it turned out when you recreated the recipe to make it palatable.
