lovely moist cake. Also try using just cinnamon instead of mixed spice and add grated orange rind and pecans or walnuts in place of sultanas/raisins. Use an orange glaze whilst still warm for an everyday, lower fat cake and use cream cheese icing for special days. Altogether yummy. - 12 Feb 2013
For me, I found this was too spicy in relation to other carrot cake recipes. My kids love catrot cake but they wasn't too sure.
Like others, I think just a little cinnamon or just one teaspoon of mixed spice would be more than enough. - 22 Dec 2014
