You can use refined brown sugar.instead of the usual white tastes great just the same. And more healthier.

brown sugar is not healthier, its white sugar with molasses.

This cake came out great! I didn’t use nuts I added a few golden raisins. It is moist indeed.

Can I substitute
vegetable oil with butter?

over 3 years ago

I find using oils instead of butter makes it super moist. At best use both, but half the recipe quantity.

Can I use whole wheat flour?

almost 3 years ago

Yes, you can definitely use whole wheat flour. Whole wheat pastry flour might be better. But either way works.

Modified this recipe a lot, but turned out amazing! Reduced carrot to 1 cup, added pineapple and banana, no walnuts, same amount of apple. Used an erythritol/stevia/sugar sweetener combo. Reduced oil to 2 tablespoons and added non-fat greek yogurt and applesauce to replace the fat content and keep the moisture. Also added lemon zest, and cardamom bitters.

Sounds great -- but a whole different recipe :-)
Lemon zest sounds like a good idea.

That sounds amazing, I might steal some of those ideas ;)

I used half of the following: brown sugar, white sugar, oil and butter. Followed every other instruction to the teeth. Turned out beautifully. Thanks.

It is not a bad recipe, but it tastes very oily, not moist.
