Carrot Cake with Buttermilk Glaze
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 55 min.
I have used this recipe for many years, except I don't use oil....I use applesauce....oil has no flavor....
I cut back on the sugar in the cake and it still tasted really good.
Just baked this cake yesterday. I thought it was very good, though the cake was not very sweet which surprised me. I followed the direction just as written. I liked the addition of the buttermilk glaze.
Fantabulous cake - made it last night and had a piece warm, yummmm, and equally scrumptious this morning. Didn't add the coconut, but all else, according to the recipe.And the buttermilk glaze is heavenly, especially warm.
The best carrot cake ever made.
This recipe is so moist! It is a must have dessert for all of our family gatherings.
was a bit sweet but loved it
This is so moist and delicious. My husband gave it 5 stars.
Fantastic recipe! My family loved it!
Delicious! I just made this cake for a family birthday. The recipient loves carrot cake but I wanted to try a non-traditional version. The batter isn't very thick but it comes out just fine. Since I was using a dark pan, I turned down my oven a little, and the cake was done in just under 55 minutes. Instead of putting the nuts in the batter I toasted them and sprinkled them on top so the kids could removed them if they didn't want them. I also omitted the coconut. If you want you can add raisins to this, I'm sure. For the glaze, I reduced the sugar to a generous 3/4 cup. There is so much sugar in this recipe that you won't even notice. This recipe is very similar to a fruit cocktail cake that my husband's mother makes him (his all time favorite), so I knew I couldn't go wrong making this one!
