Magnificent Carrot Cake
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
I made this for Easter. It is a very good, super moist carrot cake recipe. Some people loved the rum flavor while others did not. I normally love rum flavor but did not care for it in this recipe so would change it to vanilla extract. It is really personal preference.
This was good, but I did halve the rum extract in the cake and used only 1 teaspoon in the frosting. I also added vanilla. Rum extract is pretty potent, so any more would have over powered.
My sister makes this cake and its DIVINE! So moist - even after freezing. LOVE LOVE LOVE
I made this cake for the first time last Easter. It was a huge hit. Very rich, very high calorie, but soooo worth it for a special occasion.
Truly a magnificent carrot cake! I made this for a Halloween party and also brought some to work. Everyone that tried it raved about how delicious it was. I did not include currants or nuts as i didn't have them on hand and didn't feel like the cake really NEEDED it. Instead of rum extract, I used a half a shot of Captain Morgan spiced rum as I didn't have any rum extract. So that was also not included in the frosting. I decided to do without the glaze as well. Everything else was followed accordingly. I would definitely make this again! also, in addition to great flavor, it also came out super moist.
I made this for Easter. It was amazing! It is the best carrot cake I have ever had! Everyone loved it! It will definitely be my go-to recipe for carrot cake from now on.
The second time I made this,I didn't use any allspice or dried currants.I also used vanilla extract instead of rum extract.To cut down on calories I didn't use the glaze.
