    I brought in this cake to work today for a luncheon in honor of a bride to be who is celiac. This was a BIG hit , enjoyed by all. A real winner!! Thank you VERY much for sharing! BTW: I made it in 2x 21 cm cake pans. Took almost an hour to cook, but I watched it closely. Had no ill effects on the cake. Was very beautiful and impressive when it was all done and iced. If anyone else does this, be certain to do as I did, which was to cover the cake with aluminum foil mid-way through (or until the top is set) to prevent the cake from getting too brown.

    Pulled a few pieces out of the freezer ( 2 months after it was made) and it still tasted fresh baked!!
    Will definitely make this a staple in our home!

    I have this recipe in the oven as I type. I didn't find it took any extra time to make than other cakes. I used Bobs Red Mill All Purpose Baking Mix and omitted the baking soda. I also added Coconut as my daughter loves coconut in carrot cake and seeing as I am making it for her 18th birthday, I thought why not.
    I plan on decorating it with fondant, so will be interesting how it holds up.
    Thanks again for the recipe!

    This sounds great, but if you don't have time to make a gluten-free carrot cake from scratch you may want to try
    this company Lean on Me Baking's gluten-free carrot cake.
    They make a variety of gluten-free quiches, gluten-free cheesecakes, and soon will be launching a gluten-free
    brownie. You can find more information at http://www.gluten-free.tv/cheesecake

    My husband was diagnosed with Celiac Disease a couple years ago. We aren't big sweet eaters and I have never liked carrot cake, however, I tried this recipe and it is the best cake we have ever eaten. Others have tried it and also think it is the best carrot cake ever if not one of the best cakes ever. I do cook and mash up the carrots first unlike originally called for but I don't like the crunch of raw shredded carrots in cake as I don't like coconut and it feels the same. So I just adjusted it to my liking and we love this cake. It stays moist forever. Even if you don't like or have never tried carrot cake, I suggest you try it. You might be pleasantly surprised. Just a little comment and thank you Lincolntoot for posting the recipe. Off to finish my cake.

    The ingredients list calls for one 8 1/2 ounce can crushed pineapple with juice, but the cooking directions don't say whether or not you add the juice into the cake batter. I don't want to make this until I'm sure whether or not I'm supposed to add it.
    To answer majekmom's question about other possible ingredients containing gluten, the answer is no, all the ingredients on this list are gluten free. Gluten comes directly from wheat. Things to look out for on ingredient lists that aren't always associated with wheat are things like Maltodextrin, Soy Sauce, Malt Vinegar, Worcestershire Sauce, and Tamari. They are all things that usually are prepared using wheat even though wheat isn't on their actual ingredients lists. All other products out there WILL show wheat on the list of ingredients. Also take into account that your previously used pots, pans, cutting boards, mixing bowls, etc... unless THUROUGHLY cleaned may have trace ammounts of gluten still on them if you used them to make meals containing gluten in the past. Cross-contamination is the #1 problem for keeping a meal 100% gluten free even when all the ingredients used to make the meal don't themselves contain gluten. So since it will be your first time baking gluten free, I highly recommend that before you start, make sure you re-clean everything that you'll be using to make the meal with.

    I have never baked gluten free, but am a cake decorator. I have been asked to make my first gluten free cake. Is there anything else in this recipe that could possibly have gluten in it?

    I tried this recipe about a year ago (I am gluten-free), and it was fabulous. I am searching for it again because I want to make it again for an office party! I made it for my father's birthday; nobody in my family could tell it was gluten-free. Super recipe and I would recommend it to anyone. The only caveat would be that it does take a fair amount of time to make. But if you love carrot cake, you'll love the results if you follow the recipe accurately! It is so moist and keeps well for many days in the refrigerator. And the cream cheese frosting is to die for. Yum!
