I reduced the recipe by a quarter but next time would just do half the recipe. It might be the way I made it but was a bit stodgy (even for a Carrot Cake). Mind you, it all got eaten without any complaints! - 04 Jul 2013
I guess my cake tin wasn't deep enough as the mixture overflowed during baking but otherwise it was absolutely fantastic! I altered a few ingredients, for example using wholewheat flour, oat milk, and a little bit less carrot (making up the difference with the stuff left behind in the sieve when I made the oat milk! I also used a different icing. - 02 Nov 2011
