My grandma made it for us growing up and I got the recipe from her. This will be the best carrot cake you ever eat.
"I have the exact same recipe and get requests to make it several times a year. Only change to my recipe is I half the oil substituting the other 1/2 with unsweetened applesauce. A little healthier. I have replaced all oil with applesauce before. It works and it's great but it gives too much of a fruity taste to what is supposed to be carrot cake. "- BriteEyesNda805

Jeanwgriffin 11 month agoI use vanilla extract in the icing instead of lemon. Make sure it is clear vanilla so it doesn't discolor the icing.

MarciGee 1 year agoLove this recipe! A little too much oil but that's easily adjusted... I added margarine and brown sugar to my jumbo cupcake pan like you would for pineapple upside down cake) and they turned out delicious! Perfect little single serve desserts. Yummy.
Magana_Danielle 1 year agoTurned out fantastic! Only thing is I'm using a little less pineapple this time. The first time around it came out a little too moist and would quite stay together. Also dusting a little flour on the greased pans. Thanks for the revipe!

Jsmithm 2 years agoI made this for my husbands birthday. We loved it. However I don't think everyone was wild about the lemon extract in the frosting. I think next time I will use vanilla.

Lansari 2 years agoMade it with brown sugar and maple syrup and added chopped walnuts. Square pan worked better for me. Also instead of icing sugar, i used maple syrup and 1 tsp extra cinnamon in the frosting. I left out the pineapple. Also try pumpkin instead of carrots vety yummy
Elyse134 2 years agoI've never tried this cake but was wondering, is there really 50723 calories per serving or is that an error? That just sounds impossible.
janafortune 2 years agoI made this for my mom's birthday. My first time making carrot cake and my first time attempting layers. The cake TASTES delicious but my layers just made me laugh. It was quite pathetic looking. I'd make it again but in a 9x12 :)
