  • Not wanting to be mean, but this cake isn't very carrot cake. My batter was very thin. I used a 9 x 13 cake pan so I ended up with a very thin cake. There's not enough spices in it. Not much flavor. I will probably throw it away. - 12/20/17

  • I'm really not into carrot cake. I would make this though and put pecans and walnuts instead of carrots. - 7/12/17

  • I made this carrot cake for Thanksgiving because I'm trying to go Primal and my parents are both diabetic. I added a little vanilla to the frosting and used Xylitol (powdered it in my VitaMix) instead of Stevia. It was AWESOME! It was even better after sitting for a day or two. Great recipe! - 1/11/12
