About this recipe: A light, moist carrot cake made with a mixture of plain and wholemeal flour.
Whoa! Is this a cake? Or is it a cake-shaped casserole? I have to admit, I tried it because it was low in cholesterol - no eggs, but I really think it needs at least egg whites to make it a little fluffy, and I didn't have pineapple to use as was required by several other recipes. It is *incredibly* dense, although it is also very moist. However, it truly is not very much like cake. I never should have doubled the recipe, but I wanted to make a bundt cake. The directions say to use an 8-inch round cake pan. It would have to be a VERY deep pan to accommodate the recipe as written. I had so much batter after doubling the recipe that I was able to make a bundt cake AND an 8-inch square cake. The bundt cake took about an hour to bake, which is to be expected. Pick inserted in several places passed the "cake is done" test. I sent the entire bundt cake to work with my husband to share and he said everyone devoured it. My husband said he ate it because he liked the cream cheese frosting I put on it. There is no accounting for why anyone else ate it, so I gave it 3 stars. However, I really wanted to give the recipe 0 stars or just 1 star. I really would suggest that you try a different recipe unless you happen to like an extremely dense cake. Although, being so dense, it was no problem removing it from the bundt pan! - 30 Jul 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I finally found an egg less carrot cake! I thought the recipe was good, not as moist as the cake with eggs. However, I gave it 5 stars, since this is the best egg less recipe I have found. Light on sugar (the way my husband likes it); and with a cream cheese icing it is very good. I did a bunt cake and the amount was perfect. - 15 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I don't know what the previous reviewer did, but I had no problem with the amount of batter. Just enough for one cake. The cake is fairly dense, but not incredibly so. This isn't really a desert though you could westernize it with icing if you wanted to turn it into one. - 20 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
