Understand that my baking skills are extremely limited. On the other hand, after having a piece of this carrot cake, nobody can tell! I did read these reviews closely, at least until the general techniques that make this good recipe even better began to become apparent. I added 1/2 teaspoon each of nutmeg and allspice to the dry ingredients, substituted 1/2 cup of apple sauce for 1/2 cup of the oil, and added 1 cup of golden raisins to the batter. I also doubled the frosting, and had plenty to frost the cake plus a little left over. Then, since I'm baking at an altitude of 8,000-feet, I increased the flour to 2-1/4 cups, decreased the baking powder to 1-1/2 teaspoons, decreased the sugar to 1-1/2 cups, increased the baking temperature to 375F and decreased the cooking time to 40 minutes. I made 2-9" rounds (parchment/grease/floured, of course) and they came out perfectly. Guess I better start a cake section in my home recipe book, because this one will be made a few times a year! Thanks, Linda! And thanks to all those real bakers who take the time and effort to make such great suggestions for us neophytes!

This cake is absolutely delicious and the best carrot cake recipe I have ever tried. The icing really makes it. Tip - make sure you stir in the ingredients by hand as suggested. Do not use an electric mixer or the cake will really sink (I learned the hard way). This cake is also great as a bundt cake - make sure you grease the pan thoroughly.

A definite "keeper" - moist, delicious and not too sweet. I substituted applesauce for half of the oil and added yellow raisins. The cake, and frosting, were perfect.
