This is the most incredible carrot cake!! I can't eat sugar and thought this recipe was so good! I served it to people who can have sugar and they thought it was just as good as regular carrot cake!! I didn't add coconut because I couldn't find any unsweetened so I added extra walnuts. I didn't think it would be as moist as it was, but the pineapple did wonders! So delicious!! This is the cream cheese recipe I used... 1 1/2 c. low fat cream cheese room temp, 2 tsp vanilla, 1 1/2 Tablespoon butter softened, 16 packets splenda,. Blend cream cheese and butter. Add splenda and vanilla. If its too thick for you, add 0-2 Tablespoons of milk to think it out...


I made this for a diabetic friend... it turned out pretty well! I couldn't find any unsweetened coconut at the store, so I ended up putting a little bit more carrots (3 cups instead of 2 3/4) and more nuts in (I think I used about 2 cups of very finely chopped walnuts)and it turned out fine. Very moist and dense, like any carrot cake should be! I didn't do very well with the frosting, but on the Splenda website they had a tip- that you could put splenda and cornstarch in a food processor to make 'powdered sugar'. I didn't try it though. Next time.

Wonderful recipe after making a few changes. Batter was a little thick so I added 1/4 cup water. I also used 1 cup raisins instead of flaked coconut. Everything else I did the same and it turned out great.
