This cake was wonderful. I was a little nervous after reading the reviews in which people said the cake didn't turn out despite following the directions exactly, but I followed the recipe as much to the letter as I could. One thing I had to change was that I used pecans instead of walnuts. I used a food processor to chop them really finely (that was kind of an accident). The next thing was that I accidentally dumped all of a 20-oz can of crushed pineapple into the liquid mix before realizing that I should have used 8 oz, so I tried to take out a little more than half of that (a good deal of guesswork there). Finally, I used a 7x12 (or 7x11, I don't remember) glass pan instead of an 8x12 pan, so I also made cupcakes. I put the cake and cupcakes in about the same time. The cupcakes were done after about 30 minutes, the cake after about 50 minutes (total). I then used a cream cheese frosting. Super tasty. I didn't think I liked carrot cake much, but this was really delicious! (And Fiancé, who *does* like carrot cake, also really loved this cake. I made it for his birthday.)
