If it's good enough for Alton, it's good enough for me!

"I'd love to see the show on this one. This is the first cake I've ever made in a food processor! But it came out well. It's moist, though not quite as moist as I'd expect for oil vs butter and 3 eggs. And I do appreciate that it's not that sweet. Pairs excellently with a thick cream cheese icing. "

Great cake, used gluten free flour and came out fantastic

The family liked this a lot, but I didn't think it tasted enough like CARROT cake. It was more like spice cake.

Really good! I used a little less veg oil and put the carrots in a food processor for a finer texture.
