Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I replaced almost all of the oil and half of the sugar with a little more applesauce and cooked for less time, and the cake is sweet, moist and tasty. Next time I'll reduce the sugar more (possibly replace with honey) and double the spice- but I'll definitely use again, it's lovely! Submitted by:

This recipe is fairly easy to mix. The texture of the cake is a bit more dense than a normal carrot cake, but it has a nice taste. It is definitely not sweet. I added creme cheese frosting with reduced sugar and it completed the cake. It is good to have some real cake. Submitted by:

I tweaked this also. First I used half whole wheat flour and half cake flour, second I used a food processor to finely chop a freshly pealed apple and organic carrots. Third I used half light olive oil and half butter. Lastly I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Sprinkled with powdered sugar. Awesome. Submitted by:

Better as a muffin than as a cake for dessert. It might be dessert-y with a low-fat cream cheese frosting. Submitted by:

Loved this. I grated the carrots and added 1/2 cup plain yogurt, 1 tsp. baking powder and 1 tsp. vanilla. I used 3/4 cup sugar and 1 cup skins on , pureed, no sugar apples. It took 45 to 55 minutes to bake. I started checking at 35 minutes and took it out when the toothpick came out clean. Submitted by:

Suggestions: Add 1 T. vanilla, 1/4 c. milk, increase applesauce to 1 c., grate carrots, bake 30 min.; can add drained pineapple, ginger or cloves/allspice, chopped nuts; use egg whites or egg beaters for 2 of eggs, sugar subst.; use less carrots & add raisins or cranberries/other dried fruit.

This was okay. I think it was a little heavy and hard to get down. I want to make another one with the extra calories. This cake is not for me. My husband enjoyed it. Submitted by:

I LOVE this recipe!I tweaked it a bit as others have done.I used Splenda instead of sugar, and used vanilla instead of nutmeg.Also,I only made 12 muffins,but having substituted the sugar with Splenda,my calories were pretty much the same.Took about 25 mins to bake.Great as breakfast, or dessert!

liked this recipe alot.. satisfies the sweet tooth and I can stop after I eat a serving. Little ones like it too. I did sprinkle a little bit of powder sugar on top, but hope to not do that next time as I get more away from my sweet tooth Submitted by:

After reading others comments, I think I'll change sugar to Splenda and maybe add some nuts and raisins. Wondering about the olive oil. Submitted by:

My tweaks: shaved carrots, sweetened cinn. applesauce to replace oil too, triples nutmeg.

Needs *something*... will continue tweaks. Needs VANILLA!! Will also try fat free yogurt for moisture.

THe olive oil freaked me out a little, but this ended up being pretty good. I would check it after 45 or 50 minutes if you're baking it in a 13x9 in pan. THe cake itself turned out thin and lumpy, but still good. I also used a fat free cream cheese frosting from this site. Submitted by:

I'd probably rate this 4.5 stars. I'd cut the salt out altogheter for me, trying to stay away from the salt for blood pressure issues, but it sounds awesome.

I used Twin Sugar in place of sugar and used Egg Beaters for 2 of the eggs (1 real egg). I also made it in greased muffin tins-it was done after 20 minutes. Again, kind of bland and dense, but a good alternative dessert. Made it with fat-free cream cheese frosting (search for it on Spark Recipes) Submitted by:
