    • We have nut allergies here, but cake is good without them! Wish I could think of something crunchy to take the place of nuts.

      What about unsalted, shelled sunflower seeds? Or pumpkin seeds? I’m not very familiar with nut allergies, so please forgive my ignorance.

      I find raw unsalted sunflower kerrnals (hulled sunflower seeds) are a great substitute in many recipes calling for nuts! You get the crunch and nutty kind of flavor, without the nut!

    • This cake looks so good ! Can’t wait to try it!!! :worthy:

      I just made this recipe.

      1 1/2 Cups of vegetable oil is way too much. i’ve been trying to get a response form this site, but so far……… good luck.

        No, it’s really not, I make this all the time and this is based off the King Arthur Carrot Cake recipe which also uses 1 1/2 cups oil. Do you measure your flour by weight?

  1. I have substituted applesauce in the past for some or all of the oil in a cake mix. I had made a pumpkin cake.

  2. Thanks for sharing. I will use it for Mother’s Day gifts for my in-laws. I will register to post some pictures.

    I will adjust recipe tu use 16 oz Mason Jar.
