    Everyone said it was the best carrot cake they’ve had! Am making a second time for Easter Sunday!

    I didn’t have time to make the frosting before company came over, and it STILL was a hit. Will be making again very soon.

    Great cake and very moist. However I found the cake to be a bit too sweet... the recipe does call for a lot of sugar.

    I used an 8 by 20.3 ceramic pan and followed directions for 4 servings. I left it in the oven longer than I should have but it was still great I’d give myself 4 out of 5. The recipe was very easy to family loved it...even the hardest critics. Thanks for sharing this!!!!

    Used this recipe for my first try at making Carrot Cake and it was fantastic! I free-added to taste additional cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and vanilla as I saw mentioned in other recipes. Will definitely keep going back to this one!

    It’s magnificent! I’ve made this one before. Used dark brown sugar for the cake batter this time, and the color is so beautiful.

    Turned out perfect. Carrots from the garden. Shared with the neighbors so we wouldn’t eat it all.

    Should have put the carrots through a food prosesser instead of grater for sure

    Average...added fresh nutmeg, clove, & vanilla for more flavor.

    Very oily for my liking I’m afraid. Flavor is there, but it’s not good for those who are healthy conscious.

    If I were to make it again I’d add a bit more cinnamon as it was a bit bland, but super moist and the icing is so tasty!

    I would make this delicious moist cake again for sure!

    love it, icing was a little thick so I added milk. But other than that, it is better than storebought for sure!

    i forgot the oil and added pecans to the cake and its fabulous

    This carrot cake is wonderful!! It turned out super moist and the icing was fantastic! The only thing I changed was I put the pecans in the cake mix instead of the icing. Only because that’s the way I like my carrot cake!

    Took a little longer to bake than expected but it was really nice and moist I switched the walnuts out with toasted almond slices and sprinkled coconut flakes on top
