“One of my sisters, Beth, learned how to make carrot cake in home economics class in 1978. A few years ago I asked her to write down what she remembered from the recipe. Only remembering two-thirds of the ingredients, I completed the recipe by trial and error. It was worth all the effort. Simply delicious.”

Keeper! Kid approved too! Make sure you drain the pineapple! I made this as directed - I did leave out the coconut and nuts - family preference - did not adjust any other amounts or ingredients. I used a 13 x 9 pan and it was done in about 45 minutes. One note - next time I would probably add a teaspoon of baking powder in addition to the baking soda to give it a bit more lift. The taste was perfect as written. Enjoy!

This is the first carrot cake I've made, and I don't need to keep looking! This cake is so delicious! I followed the recipe, omited nuts, baked in a glass 10x13 for 53 min and was glad I checked it when I did. It would have been dry if left for the full hour. The cake is moist, light, and so full of healthy fiber! I did end up doubling the frosting recipe. It didn't look like enough, and I really love cream cheese frosting ;) Next time, I'll add more spices to get a spicier cake. I'd also like to try some golden raisins!

I made this for my family and they loved it! I did add chocolate chips and excluded the coconut. Followed the rest to a T, came out perfect.
