Swiss Carrot Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

Very delicate, delicious cake--very different from the more "hearty", spiced carrot cake we're all used to. I loved the lemon flavor and the light icing--perfect for serving at a tea or brunch. Mine came out a little dark on top, so you may want to cover with foil the last 20 minutes or so of baking. I'll be serving again for special occasions!

This cake was a little too lemony for me. I was looking for something closer to carrot cake. This, while good, did not taste anything like carrot cake. It is light and would be good to serve at a tea or luncheon.

This came out out great, without a lot of effort. I used freshly squeezed orange juice instead of lemon. Half the juice of one orange went into the cake and the other half went into the glaze. I also only 1/2 cup of confectioners' sugar in the glaze. This will make a great breakfast treat!

Well, I didn't expect that. And I knew not to expect a normal carrot cake but wow. The lemon on top gives a wham bam, thank you ma'am.
