  • “Very good cake. I made it with a cheese icing.”

  • “I also had the people at work rate this.They all said they liked it,but nobody asked for the recipe.I iced it with cream cheese frosting—very good.I think this is one of those cakes that would become even better if allowed to set for a day before eating.I also think I’ll add nuts next time.Thanx for sharing!!!”

  • “MizzNezz, I as well as my dd, and Chef sheerkerry really enjoyed this cake. I did frost it with a cream cheese frosting, and we loved how it tasted. My husband on the other hand, said the cream cheese frosting was a bit too sweet for him, so the next time I’m going to top this cake with a chocolate butter frosting just for him. Thank you MizzNezz for sharing your recipe with us fellow Zaar members. This cake was very moist, very good, and much better than one of those usual carrot cake recipes. I loved that fact that this was also made with cocoa powder. YUM-O!!”

  • “This is a wonderful cake?Just like MizzNezz says, Moist, flavorful and Very Good!!Frosted with cream cheese icing.Thank you for sharing.”

  • “I made this cake for potluck and it was a winner! I changed a few things since I didn’t have 2 cups of sugar. Instead I put 1/2 cup sugar and then 1/2 cup of applesauce. Next time I’m going to add raisins and walnuts. It was a big hit. Thanks for the recipe.”
