Rated 5 out of 5 by from BETTER than the original!!!! This recipe promises moist and flavorful cake with a wonderful cream cheese frosting, and it delivers perfect and delicious results. I substituted half almond flour and half coconut flour instead of white flour, added some chopped Mejool dates and cut back accordingly on the raisins, used fat free buttermilk and fat free cream cheese to make this cake even healthier. After working out with my trainer, we both enjoyed a piece as a reward with no guilt! I am a Truvia fan and addict t for taste and functionality, no other stevia comes close.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Carrot Cake MADE BETTER I've always been a lover of carrot cake, but especially now when it's added benefit is even fewer calories! The addition of Truvia in place of white sugar makes the fluffy cake a little less in guilt. The only issue I had with the cake was a subtle bitter aftertaste. When made with a less sweetener-heavy frosting, I'm sure there'd be no problem! But I love carrot cake. This works out no matter what.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste. Question about green specks The taste and consistency was great on this. I substituted apple sauce for part of the oil, and it still turned out very moist. Also used crushed pineapple. I did notice some green specks in cake and couldn't figure out where they came from. I used pre-shredded carrots.Could that perhaps be it. Perhaps the interaction between carrots and Truvia? Does anyone have an answer for this?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful moist cake I made this cake and loved how moist and delicious it was! It freezes beautifully so I can keep it on hand for a quick desert. I also use Truvia to sweeten all my food, I am diabetic and must watch my sugar intake. I am also on a low calorie diet to lose weight and I love the baking mixes. Truvia is the best sweetener I have found that has no bitter after taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Birthday! I made this as my dads birthday cake, since carrot cake is his favorite, and he could not tell the difference between it and a full calorie, full sugar cake. I make this cake often now that I know he likes it, and I love to make it for him because it's a dessert that doesn't fill you up with a bunch of sugar!
