Simple and Perfect
Delish! I had to beat the family away from just eating it straight out of the bowl or I wouldn't have had any to put on the divine carrot cake. It was sweet and soft and easy to make.
Best of the best
So great!! I'm a big lover of carrot cake and I thought our local health food store's restaurant made the best. I can say that this recipe beat its pants off! It was pretty easy to put together and baked up beautifully. The spices are incredible and the cake is moist. Pair it with the vegan cream cheese frosting linked above and it is absolutely divine. Love it! Thank you!
Made this recipe twice. The first time was for a potluck. But I hardly got any before it was gone. So I made it again and I and the kids are enjoying every bite. It has a wonderful flavor, with just enough sweetness to make it perfect for eating plain. And, to boot, the recipe was really easy.
A deliciously sturdy recipe
I was missing some ingredients, but having blueberries and some no-kids-in-the-house time, I went for it, anyway.
I used 2 1/4 cups and 1 Tbsp of whole wheat flour, since I was out of AP flour. I didn't have any lemon extract or margarine. (Why did I try this?) But I used the Canola oil substitution given to another reviewer, and just omitted the lemon extract.
These muffins came out a lot more moist than I expected (all the oil, maybe?), and definitely needs two hands to eat, but the taste is outstanding! Delicious! I can't wait to try these again, using the recipe as written, and taking the awesomeness up a notch. But clearly this recipe is solid and can handle substitutions like a pro. A definite fave!
Turned me into an oatmeal cookie lover
I don't like oatmeal raisin cookies. They are too dry and blah. But I needed a recipe with a purple ingredient for a themed potluck, so I picked this one. I figured there would be no danger of over-indulging in these cookies.
I was so, so wrong! These are delicious!
The very wet consistency of the dough scared me, but I am very glad I persevered. I can't wait to share these with my friends. ...if I can keep my hands off them.
Love these! But you have to pay attention to the size of the cookies. My first batch, while good, were very, very crunchy. I had made them much too small and didn't think to adjust the time. This second batch I made them bigger and they are perfect!
