About this recipe: I found this carrot cake recipe 23 years ago. It is a simple carrot cake, nicely spiced, and great for those that don't like cream cheese icing. The Butter sauce is really delicious and easy to prepare.
Disappointed with the final result. Cake bland, not sweet enough. Definately needed the sauce but it tasted like sweet butter water. Will not make again. - 26 Oct 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very GOOD!!! I heated the butter sauce each time before I served it, I ended up making about 10 of these in a month, everybody likes them. - 18 Feb 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
It was less like a carrot cake than a very good spice cake. I will make the cake again but may choose to use a more traditional cream cheese frosting. I was skeptical about the instructions regarding not greasing the baking pan but had absolutely NO problem getting the cake out of the glass baking dish. The butter sauce was a huge disappointment (hence the 4 out of 5 stars). The corn starch turned a creamy sauce into a gloppy, lumpy coagulated mess. Reheating did not thin it and it was SO unattractive on top of the otherwise delicious cake. - 14 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
