I have found this recipe, and the cake sounded great.  But after reading through the entire thing, I am unsure of the liquid content.   Would some of you bakers, read through this for me and see what you think?   Thanks!!!

Looks fine to me.  The 4 eggs & 1 cup of oil should provide plenty of moisture (the carrots will as well).

 

Good Luck!

i almost always cut back on the 'cup of oil' but it works with it too

 

carrots are so juicy it's nutso crazy

 

so i would recommend fresh grated carrots

 

(the ones in the bags at the store look dry to me--good for soup i think)

 

the formula seems viable to me

 

although sugar for the pans is something new to me

 

sugar is a liquid kinda

It's just about the proportions of flour, eggs, sugar and fat I use for my modified 1-2-3-4 cake, which is a nice, dense and moist cake. I agree with -K8memphis though about the sugar for the pan. Wouldn't that totally make it stick to the sides and bottom or am I reading it wrong?

and be prepared to add more powdered sugar to your icing if necessary
