    I found this cake to to very moist and tasty. My six year old son enjoyed it and didn't believe there was carrot in there. Unlike a lot of gluten free cakes I found it stays fresh and moist, I will definitely make it again.  -  03 Nov 2011


    Looks nice but how is it sugar free?  -  03 Jan 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Made this yesterday - very nice though not sure how it justifies being sugar free. I made it using fruit sugar and it was fine  -  18 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
