I have been looking for a good carrot cake recipe for some time – I wanted something similar to what my mother used to make. I have to say this is better! The cake was incredibly moist and tasty. I cheated a bit by using a package of pre-shredded carrots and it still was great. As my family does not like cream cheese, I made a standard buttercream frosting with vanilla and cinnamon which worked really well.
I was added apple sauce instead of the vegetable oil. I toasted some coconut flakes and decorated the sides of the cake, and on top too. I did concentric circles of coconut flakes and piped shell shape frosting. I piped her name in orange frosting in the last middle circle. It was lovely.
It was very moist and delicious ! We love this cake! I love how easy it is to make and how amazing it is when it is done. We have left it out as well as in the refrigerator and it doesn’t dry out either way. This is a keeper for us!
This Carrot Cake is OUT OF THIS WORLD! Seriously! As good as the cake is...the frosting is the kicker...it's like cream cheese frosting on steroids and it's AMAZING!!!
