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.
AAd to hear it! I have never heard of pineapple in carrot cake.
I did a carrot cake for a groom's cake and he wanted pineapple, raisins & nuts in his.
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?
ADid anyone try this recipe as cupcakes!?!?!? How did they rise??? For the person who use coconut how much coconut did you use!?? Also if this was used for cupcakes how many cupcakes did it make????
This recipe sounds good....my dd loves carrot cake, I will have to try it for her soon! :)

Boy - I felt like I needed Google Translate to read your post
Did you peel your carrots ??
AToo much baking soda will turn carrots green, or maybe not incorporating it fully.
I didn't understand the post either.
If adding a small can of crushed pineapple to this recipe...are there any other adjustments needed?
wow thank you so much !!! i will try it for sure .) you are an angel

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!???
Hi Debbie, sorry. I did make this cake with crushed pineapple and I did see your post. I will send you a PM.
Sorry I haven't been here to respond to any questions or comments...I have been gone for awhile.
It's going well. Between school, that and cakes I don't have time for much else..
BTW...the carrot cakes were huge as my Thanksgiving special.
Nah...I was banned but Heath seen it is his heart to lift the ban.
AMissed you Shannon! Glad you're back! Love your carrot cake.... Family was very glad you shared
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?
