    YUM! Try my alterations if you want a healthier version of this great carrot cake. I made several changes to the original recipe (based on some of the recs) and it came out smashing... Split the flour 1/2 white, 1/2 wheat... Split and reduced sugar 3/4c brown, 3/4c white, added 1c unsweetened applesauce and 1/4c oil to cut down on grease factor, added pecans instead of walnuts (only about 1/3c smashed) and golden raisins instead of brown. I also didn't add the coconut (forgot!) and instead mixed it into the cream cheese frosting (also made with 1/3 less fat cream cheese and less sugar than recipe called for). The frosting was AWESOME... just let it sit for an hour or so to let the coconut flavor permeate. Also... use a hand mixer to incorporate the wet ingredients and MAKE SURE to DRAIN the pineapple very well by pushing out excess liquid in a metal colander/sieve.  -  20 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is outstanding! I thought my original recipe was the best, I was wrong! The only alterations I did was use half buttermilk and half oil and cut the sugar to 1 1/4 cups and use brown sugar it came out moist and delicious, it cut down on sugars and fats. An excellent recipe, full of fruit and has a low GI rating, a healthy snack that I do not mind my children eating occassionally, with the above alterations, each slice (based on 24 slices baked in a large recantular tray) has under 1/3 ounce (7 grams) of fat! That is less than a granola bar. Thanks for the recipe!!  -  11 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This cake was delicious, moist and flavorful! I put the raisins and carrots in a bowl with the pineapple while I got everything else ready, to let the raisins hydrate in the pinapple juice and they were extra-plump and yummy in the cake. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!  -  30 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
