Puréed carrots give this cake extra moisture and texture. This cake mixture is also packed with luscious ingredients like walnuts, coconut, pineapple and cinnamon. Altogether a gorgeous carrot cake!
Amazing cake and absolutely huge! It feels very extravagant when baking due to the large quantities and range of ingredients but it is also so easy to make. I layered and topped the cake with a cream cheese frosting using lemon zest which was a great contrast to the sweet, juicy cake. This is now my new celebration cake which I will make time and again. - 28 Aug 2013
Taste is a subjective thing but I'm going to add my two cents on this cake regardless. IMHO this cake has absolutely NO carrot flavor. It's a beautiful and moist cake but if that's is all I wanted there are other cakes I could have made. If you really want a carrot cake wait until you have the time and the energy to grate those carrots. Otherwise wait.....this shortcut isn't worth it. - 01 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is unbelievable. I had been looking for a good carrot cake recipe- but instead found one that is superb! My very picky husband and I ate 3/4 of the cake ourselves in 2 days! The other 1/4 went to some former co-workers that have been begging me for the recipe ever since. The title says it all- this carrot cake recipe is golden! - 27 Mar 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
