    I made half of this recipe for my husband’s birthday. It was incredibly good. The lemon juice in the icing was perfect.

    Baking this cake for over 40 years, yes, recipe from nurse friend in Maryland. Difference:
    Only use 2 cups flour, 1 1/2tsp baking soda, 1 1/2 salt , 2 tsp cinnamon, 2 tsp baking powder etc except salad oil instead of olive oil. Try it. Friends love it.
    Use 2 10” pans or 3 9” pans in original recipe.

    I have a carrot cake recipe I have used forever but decided to try something new during this quarantine. A lot of cake for just my husband and I but I wrap slices and freeze for future indulgence. The cake was delicious and the frosting was absolutely delicious, although there wasn’t enough to frost the sides of the cake. And the frosting was quite runny. Not the consistency of your normal cream cheese frosting. But we absolutely loved the addition of the lemon juice!

    Wow. This carrot cake was the best carrot cake we’ve ever had! The family was unanimous. My husband always requests carrot cake for his birthday, and I usually order it from a local bakery. But we are are in the midst of Covid-19, so I baked my very first layer cake ever. We will never order carrot cake again, because it will never compare to this fantastic recipe. Thank you, Elise!

    Hi, My daughter is allergic to nuts would you recommend taking out the walnuts and adding raisins. Or what other item could you suggest i add instead of the walnuts. Then perhaps reduce the sugar by 1/2 a cup?
    This will be my first time making a carrot cake I hope it turns out well.
