looks yummy - but I have a question - does carrot cake always require so much oil? And if so - why.

I'm not sure why this recipe has a lot of oil - although that's probably one of the reasons it's so moist. :) (Definitely not a health food, despite the vegetables, but it makes an awesome special occasion cake!) I'd say you could easily reduce the oil by a quarter cup or so if you wanted, though. I've reduced the sugar by half a cup in the past as well, with no problems.

Sounds and looks delicious! I may adjust the oil amount, but the rest sounds terrific. Thanks for posting the recipe.

(And good timing, too! A friend of a friend did me a favor and his only request in return was that I bake him a carrot cake -- his favorite.)

P.S. Do you have a favorite cream cheese icing recipe?

I don't actually tend to work from a set recipe for cream cheese icing. I usually put a pottle of regular cream cheese (I think the reduced fat cream cheese goes a bit runny in icing) and a quarter cup or so of milk in a bowl, then beat it until it's smooth, add a couple of large splashes of vanilla and the juice of one lemon, then start adding icing (powdered) sugar and beating it in until the consistency and taste are right. :)

Yum! Carrot cake is such an awesome cake :D
wildmagelet 23rd-Feb-2013 03:15 am (UTC)
Agreed. :) (By everyone in my extended family except my sister-in-law's sister-in-law, lol, who refuses to eat dessert that contains vegetables. *SIGH* :D)

Awesome, I hope it turns out well for you! :) It's always been a reliably good recipe for me.

never done a carrot cake without butter. I need to try this. Looks really good.

I wonder how it would taste with coconut oil

If you do try the coconut oil, let me know!

Everytime I make carrot cake it always gets stuck to the pan no matter how much Pam I use.
