This was a delicious carrot cake. I made a fat-free version of it by substituting applesauce for the oil, and eggbeaters for eggs. It still turned out very moist and delicious!!

Although this cake had a fair taste, I would not compare it to a regular carrot cake. The taste is not the same as one with regular shredded carrots. The baby food definitely overpowered.

Excellent carrot cake!! Made it for my daughter's first birthday, it was a hit! Best with homemade cream cheese frosting.

I served this for my sister's tea party birthday. My mom said it was the best cake she EVER had! That's saying a lot coming from a choc-a-holic. Super yummy and very easy to make. I felt like I was cheating with the baby food, but it turned out so beautiful we didn't miss the grated carrots at all!

My house smelled heavenly while my cake was baking! The taste is good, the texture light.....I think I like a denser cake for my taste. I added a cream cheese frosting to mine. I think I'll keep experimenting with carrot cakes.
