    I chose this recipe because I hate grating carrots plus I was time pressured it turned our beautifully. I only tweaked the recipe because I used cream cheese frosting no one complained it was too sweet excellent help for me it was for a community tea many thanks to Nina  -  13 Sep 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    Very easy to make and a nice, light carrot cake which makes a change from the usual recipes. The icing/topping was a little bitter with dark chocolate so I'm going to try a sweeter, milk chocolate next time - it was amazing warm with ice cream though! Son-in-law managed three slices of it in an afternoon so not all bad :-)  -  14 Jun 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
