Once you make this honey-sweetened carrot cake, it will become a firm favourite. It's rich, moist and incredibly delicious. The honey and cream cheese icing, really IS the icing on the cake!
Great healthy cake. For anyone wondering... I substituted whole wheat flour for 2 of the cups of flour with no ill effect. Also, I baked it in a bundt pan (the person I was baking it for could not have any type of icing, so I thought a bundt shape would be prettier), and it came out fine. - 26 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was great! My husband is a health and fitness nut and didn't want a birthday cake that had any refined sugar. He loved this, and so did my kids, who have no problem gobbling down refined sugar! Glad to have found a cake to please everyone! - 01 Nov 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a great carrot cake recipe! As I keep finding with the cakes I've been making lately, this cake tastes even better after the day it is made. I used 2 9-inch rounds for this cake. I did find the frosting for this cake to be a bit "strange". It's mainly just cream cheese, and as a result, the honey "separated out" once I had iced the cake. By the second day, the cake was looking stranger and stranger (a brown, streaky appearance and the icing had split along the line where the two cake layers come together)...but it sure did taste good! If anyone has some tips to prevent this, please post! - 23 Sep 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
