AWSOME! My family and I loved this cake! Extremely moist, GREAT flavor...and, with a few changes, it's semi-healthy too! All I did differently was: I added a little allspice to the flour mixture.
Used only 1 cup of vegetable oil (HIGHLY reccomended - it was plenty moist)
Used about 1 1/2 cups sugar (I thought it was the perfect amount of sweetness, especially with the frosting..by the way, my frosting had one package of cream cheese, half a stick of butter, 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar, and 1 tsp. orange extract. Sometimes I add orange zest too. Orange is a GREAT flavor with carrot cake.) Instead of baby food, I used extra grated carrots. I reccommend adding extra carrots even if you use baby food, since 1/2 cup isn't very much.
Didn't put any pecans in the batter - just on top of the frosting. =)
With these small changes, it was definitely a 5 star cake!!
((This recipe is VERY similar to Carrot Cake III - only this one calls for baby food, so I think I'm going to start using that recipe...not that this one isn't DELISH!))
