Great, thanks.  Can't wait to try it.  The cranberries sound good to me!

Excellent! Made it last night for a baby shower cake. My old recipe was good but not good for decorating. I will use this one from now on! I like crushed pineapple in my carrot cake so for a doubled recipe I used 1.25 cups oil, 3/4 cup apple sauce, then added 3/4 cup crushed pineapple (drained). Turned out delicious. Dense and moist and great for decorating. I'd love to add nuts and coconut next time It would taste amazing but I didnt for this cake because of allergies.

Really? Ive seen lots of carrot cake recipes with pineapple in them. Ive always used it. It keeps it really moist and adds subtle flavor.

When making carrot cake I always add crushed pineapple. Pineapple is the reason I make carrot cake. Love, love, love pineapple, can you tell?

AToo much baking soda will turn carrots green, or maybe not incorporating it fully.

Too much baking soda will turn carrots green, or maybe not incorporating it fully.

After a google search I did read that, I was wondering if it happened to anyone using this recipe to figure out if it was the incorporation or the amount of baking soda!???

I  wondered also why you weren't on here. Glad to see you back, especially waving a delicious new recipe in my face. As if I didn't have enough new recipes to try this time of year. Glad it's snowing outside as it will be a good day to spend in the kitchen. And yes, I adore anything with cranberries in it. And pineapple, too , Mimi. Cranberries and pineapple, what could be better?
