  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10-inch Bundt® pan.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the cake mix, tomato soup, water, eggs, canola oil, carrot, and pecans until the mixture forms a smooth batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Invert the pan and turn the cake out onto a cooling rack; cool to room temperature.
  4. In a bowl, mix together the confectioners' sugar with lemon juice until smooth; drizzle glaze over cake.

The only thing I did differently was to use a box carrot cake mix instead of a spice cake mix. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfectly. Next time I think I'd try adding a little coconut.

This was a nice cake--with my additions a four star recipe! I added an extra 1/4 tsp of nutmeg and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. It definitely could have used more carrot--I increased it to 1 cup shredded carrot. I didn't use the icing, the cake was moist enough as is. Thanks!

WOW I was shocked to see the tomato soup in the ingredient list, but made them anyway. WOW!!!! these are great! i also added a full cup of shredded carrot. I made cupcakes instead of cake. My husband ate 3 right out of the oven! I had to guard the rest. You can't go wrong with this fast super moist recipe!

This was a delicious cake. I tried it with the spice cake mix and with a regular carrot cake mix and they both came out wonderful. I probably liked the spice just a bit more because of the different flavors. For another delicious carrot cake recipe, visit my website at http://showercakedesigns.com/delicious-carrot-cake-recipe That recipe made by far the most succulent and moist carrot cake I have ever eaten. Enjoy!
