This is Emeril's recipe
This was pretty good. I doubled the cinnamon since 2t didn't seem like enough and that was good. But it was a spongier carrot cake (not dense like I prefer). The good thing is the batter is thick so your mix-ins won't sink.
This is now my go-to carrot cake recipe. Perfect texture and tastes great!
This recipe was really good. Does anyone have a cream cheese icing recipe that is stable yet you can still taste the cream cheese in it? I've tried quite a few recipes from cc but they are all so sweet that you can't taste the cream cheese at all. And being that carrot cake is sweet, I think it needs that ting from a cream cheese frosting.
pottedmeatchunks- if you like a dense carrot cake try Paula Deen's. It's good but was too dense for my liking.
Is this good for stacking carving?
I made this recipe along with the Decorator's Cream Cheese Frosting recipe (added an additional cream cheese to the frosting recipe) on cc and it received so so SO many positive reviews. I was a little nervous to make the recipe as I'm not a big carrot cake fan, but man-o-man, was this combination or recipes a killer cake - fantastic! I'm now a fan of carrot cake!
fantastic taste but mine keeps falling - made it 3 times, 9"round, using Wilton's bake even strips. I'm at high altitude but haven't made any adjustments. they come out of the oven looking great but sink in the middle while cooling. what am I doing wrong?
I have the same problem with the sinking centers. I have made this recipe three times and it has failed all three times. I am also high altitude, sooooo that may be why. The edges bake fine and taste amazing!!! Definitely the best tasting carrot cake recipe I have tried. Wish it would bake right :-(
Becks57 & Mark-Mexicano- Have you tried lowering the oven temp to 325 degrees? Heavy cakes most often times prefer slower bake time. Just a tip. Good Luck!
