    The cake was swimming in oil when i took it out of the oven:/ i followed the ingredients and directions for the batter, only i also added pecans in the batter instead of the frosting, - EXCEPT I had to put the batter in the fridge after mixing it as i had to go ..not sure if that could have been the cause as Ive heard other people complain about it swimming in oil too:/) It was still delicious even if leaving oil puddles under it on plates :) ..just wish i couldve used the oil for something else

    Flavour is good, but it feels too greasy and feels weird after eating

    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!!!!

    Amazing!!!!! Used a cup of brown sugar and another of white sugar and added 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence to tweak it. Super moist and delicious

    God but too much sugar for myself... :/

    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.
    Tina Diedrick a year ago
    Mmmmm. This was delicious! Can't wait to have some more tomorrow morning with a cup of coffee!

    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!
