The carrot cake with the cream cheese icing was awsome! I made it for the girls at work, and it was a big hit.The only thing I did change was I put in a pinch of allspice. I had enought batter to make one loaf and some cupcakes.

Great flavor and texture, spices just right and lemon juice and zest in icing perfect. I reduced the sugar by a half cup and added one-quarter cup sweetened shredded coconut. I also added 1 cup raisins microwaved for three minutes in two cups water with orange extract and sugar and then drained. Recipe exactly filled a 9*13 cake pan.

I made this for my birthday cake and LOVED it. Used the exact recipe. Had no problem and I'd never made a cake from scratch before. Awesome!
