Well done, John, super cake! Some time ago, and I've made at home, but did not say what it is until you try it and like it!

Well done, John! Thanks for the recipe :)

This is your favorite cake my husband and cheesecake :). When I first tried it seemed strange, because I tuned that carrots do not suit sweets :). American sweets very sweet, even I, who love very sweet barely swallow them :). Cream of Carrot Cake, which I have eaten in America is too sweet and I do not like to contain cream cheese. Which was performed for the first time, but I kept the recipe of cream just because I had so much cheese. Added sugar and butter to taste, it was very tasty, with a slight acidic streak. I used cream cheese Philadelphia. So if you decide to do, add sugar cream less and you do it to suit your taste :).

It was a great all liked it, tomorrow will Evangelistria again. Fast, easy delicious.

yesterday made it again, but I substituted carrots with 2 peaches became great, I will let the picture. In cream added sour cream became great, but each has its own taste.

For the first time I've made a cake with carrots and am very pleased with the outcome. Tastes great - all at home in January approved. The cream is a little different than that of the recipe - I put cheese, sugar, cream and cream *Ole* (Dr. Oetker). Tomorrow we will get and photos (my birthday cake is not to show that ignored the decoration, but at least a piece will show you). One golyayayayamo thanks for the recipe.

I am very glad you like it! You and I can make it soon, thanks for reminding me about this recipe :).

unique taste - added pineapple and coconut (which were referred to another recipe). I tried to bake a cake, which then cut into two - the baking time tripled and yet in the middle had not baked very well, and then cutting was difficult. A small piece of dough baked in another pan and then get great. So it should be divided and baked into two parts.

Sladki64e, again make a beautiful decoration. Remind me again for this irresistible recipe. Share where you put pineapple and coconut - in swamps you?

Yes, Elti in mixture marshes put. Baking time increases. Becomes very juicy.

We'll try and so, thank you.

Thanks for all the nice words!

For the first cake baking oven heated know in advance? And approximately how much increase baking by adding pineapple?

The oven is preheated. I can not say exactly how much increases the cooking time, when added pineapple. Always bake things eye - try to stick and if not sticky, it's baked. Next time will detect the time and score. I have two identically sized circular baking pans, which are collected together in the oven and roast so the two ponds simultaneously.

Thanks for the quick response.

Petya again its crafted beautiful cake!

Incredibly decorated cakes have here. You are great girls.

Well done, girls! Great decorations do!

you Another great idea to decorate this cake :) Well done!

favorite birthday cake, so I thought I would like him :).

sladki64e, ... that's it! Just no words! Incredible fantasy amazing performance!

John wonderful performance.

And can anyone tell me with what diameter is approximately baking pan if it is round, because I do not have a rectangular similar size of those in the recipe?

Emla, is 23 cm baking pan. Baked are 2 separate marshes. I guess you can not izpechesh and more baking pan and a single-crust and then it razrezhesh 2. Good luck and tell whether you liked. Shortly before I saw your question I thought to do this cake that I have not made her :)

I'm sorry for the confusion. EMKA wanted to write. Then a little vague I expressed. I mean, sure can and a cake to be baked in the same pan diameter and then cut into two, but then surely the cooking time will be longer. Or you can izpechesh more pan only one cake and cream can deliver only top. I always do two separate swamps and then put cream between them and the top. Thus it is more juicy.

Thanks for the quick reply :) No problem, everyone can go wrong. I make her try on these days and will write about the result;)

sladki64e, this image of a cake, or is it a picture ?! ;) Congratulations, dear is very beautiful! :)

Thank you, Lirinka! Under the picture is cake;)

Many successful recipe and very well explained everything! Thank you! :)
