Beautiful light carrot cake ever!  Made this in the rectangle pan and left out walnut.  Enjoyed by all.  Thank you Kiimmyh, will make this many more!

Cooked this today.. Tasted it when it first came out of the oven as I had an unfortunate accident and it broke getting it out of the tins whilst getting a bad cramp around my ribs of all places.. Not fun.. Anyway.. My fault as i thought my tins were stick proof lol and found it a little bland but once it cooled i quite enjoyed it.. :)

The disaster ...

I have been asked to make a carrot cake as a birthday cake - do you think this recipe would be enough for 2 x 20cm square tins?  I am going to stack the 2 cakes on top of each other to make a higher cake, so they dont need to be that thick individually.

Karen I don't think there is enough mix for two tins. If you want a higher than normal cake, maybe try one tin and cut the cake into two layers and fill with cream cheese frosting to raise it up a bit. Just be careful that the centre cooks and the edges don't dry out.

Thanks Kim - I might try and increase the recipe by 1.5 and see how I go.  Sounds like a delicious cake, and Callum has especially requested carrot cake as his birthday cake for this weekend.

In the oven now:  but doing 1.5 times the mixture is really too much for TMX to handle.  It didnt mix properly at the end, and I had to stir everything together with a spatula.  But the mixture tastes yummy  ;D ;D

I dont know if you could cut the cake easily karen and dont think it would fit two tins as not alot of mixture.  I found it quite crumbly... Not my fav carrot cake recipe to be honest but thats me :(

Really Frozzie, i would rate it up there. It had a delicious crust and was moist the 2 times i have made it. Didnt split the mix though, just baked it in a very large loaf tin.
