A delicious cake flavored with carob and sweetened with honey! It is a weird taste if you are expecting chocolate - but can be addicting when you get used to it!

This cake was the best "chocolate" cake I have ever eaten. I did use whole wheat flour inside of white flour. It did not seem to make any difference. The cake was moist and remained that way until the last piece was eaten! (Which didn't last long.) The frosting was another story. This was not as great as expected and fortunately for me I did not add it to the cake. I think maybe it needed some heavy cream... Again I highly recommend this recipe for the cake part.

This is a delicious carob cake. It is moist and has the perfect texture and sweetness. I did substitute applesauce for the butter to keep it low-fat. I also used my own version of carob frosting (carob powder, milk, and powdered sugar). I also found that I had to cook it for 20 minutes longer than the recipe stated. I grew up eating carob cake every year for my birthday, and this is one of the best ones I have tasted. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!

Great cake! I've tried many times to make a cake with frosting using carob (my son is allergic to cocoa), but they usually never turned out. This is a definite keeper - the cake is moist without being half raw and the banana adds a nice flavour, and the icing is tasty too. Next time I'll only make half the icing though. I substituted 1/3 of the flour with whole wheat, and sprinkled shredded coconut over the icing.
