    Moistest carrot cake I’ve ever eaten! This is the second time I’ve made this and this recipe’s a “keeper”. I split the batter between three 9” round pans and they were done in 25 minutes.

    I used a food processor for the carrots and the rest of the prep was a piece of cake 😂. I garnished the frosting with chopped walnuts. It turned out absolutely delicious and I will make this again soon. Didn’t last long.

    Turned out great. Did half of the the sugar and only a half a cup of oil and the other half was unsweetened apple sauce

    So good! Best carrot cake recipe I've ever had. In 2 9-inch round cake pans, I only needed to bake for 35 minutes. I also needed to make 1.5x more icing to cover the whole cake.

    Not too moist, why? It’s cooked from out side and not really cooked inside

    I loved it. Tip let it cool down before (obviously) icing. Icing maybe not be thickened to it’s liking but once iced and refrigerated it’s nice and settled 🤤

    The cake itself is great. Nice and moist, and quick to whip together. I'm going to need to try a different icing next time, though. The icing sugar came in too strong for my family's tastes.

    Nice and moist. I added a bit of pineapple chunks and juice which adds to the sweetness

    Delicious but you need twice as much frosting to completely cover your cake
