This cake was DISGUSTING. The person who submitted the recipe must be having a laugh!
I followed it to the letter, and thought when I was putting the mix into the baking tin that it was very runny - in fact it looked more like batter than cake mix. I think that the addition of the pineapple and its juice was a mistake, as it made the mix extremely sloppy. The recipe says 35-40 mins to cook - after more than an hour I gave up and removed the gooey mess from the oven. There was no way it was ever going to be cake, not even moist cake. It just refused to cook. I did taste it, though, and the flavour that I noticed most was cloves, not carrot. - 08 Mar 2009
Omitted the walnuts, this did taste surprisingly good and was a great hot with the kids, and it's fairly easy to make too. However the mixture is very runny, I had to add a bit more flour and it's a nightmare to get out of the tin! About a third of the cake ended up stuck round the sides and bottom - 19 Mar 2014
