Use unsalted butter!
Best Ever. Made this and crowd loved it! Son in law requested again for 4th!
Are you using unsalted butter. If you are using salted butter then of course it will taste salty.
at the same time. it uses 11 oz. of cream cheese.
i made this cake for the first time for my husband for Fathers Day and everyone loved it. So now my daughter wants one for her birthday! Best carrot cake ever!
Unsalted butter or margarine
Try using sweet butter. This is all I ever use when baking.
The frosting calls for:
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
Why twice for packaged cream cheese and when do I add the second package to the mix?
Yah, try unsalted butter!
I will make the cream cheese frosting again, but without the butter/margarine. Seem like the margarine made the frosting salty. Anyone has a suggestion.
I made this cake last week for work and everyone wanted the recipe. It was so good, I made it again this weekend and it was even better. This is the only carrot cake recipe I will ever use again.
Fantastic, so creamy and fluffy. The amount was great as I often don't have enough.
Taste is real good, you can skip the butter if you want to and only use cream cheese and powdered sugar, both ways are safe to use. DON'T use margarine, it will ruin it. Next time I'll try using Baileys Irish Cream instead of vanilla.
The best Carrot cake ever! Took some time, very rich but the real deal!
It was a little bit too sweet for me, so i think next time i will be using less sugar, maybe 2 cups only instead. I think with a bit less sugar, it would truly be delicious and taste the cream cheese flavor more.
My sister-in-law made this Best Carrot Cake with the buttermilk glaze and this Cream Cheese Frosting and it was delicious. She baked it in a 9"x13" loaf pan. Chill cake in refrigerator before icing with the Cream Cheese Frosting. Yummy!!!
I followed the recipe to a "t" and it was FABULIOUS!
This recipe is the BEST creamcheese frosting recipe!! I make cake regularly and this is ALWAYS a hit, no matter the cake!!! Its awesome!!!
I followed recipe to the T and it came out perfect! Not runny at all. I use this with other recipes as well. Tastes great!
icing is a little runny...maybe i need to add some more conf. sugar....taste delicious though
Far too much of a buttery taste and much, much too runny. I had to add so much more icing to make it useable.
Tastes wonderful. I only used 1/2 cup of butter. Very nice!
Perfect combination of sweet!
