Great, thanks.  Can't wait to try it.  The cranberries sound good to me!

Excellent! Made it last night for a baby shower cake. My old recipe was good but not good for decorating. I will use this one from now on! I like crushed pineapple in my carrot cake so for a doubled recipe I used 1.25 cups oil, 3/4 cup apple sauce, then added 3/4 cup crushed pineapple (drained). Turned out delicious. Dense and moist and great for decorating. I'd love to add nuts and coconut next time It would taste amazing but I didnt for this cake because of allergies.

Really? Ive seen lots of carrot cake recipes with pineapple in them. Ive always used it. It keeps it really moist and adds subtle flavor.

When making carrot cake I always add crushed pineapple. Pineapple is the reason I make carrot cake. Love, love, love pineapple, can you tell?

Too much baking soda will turn carrots green, or maybe not incorporating it fully.

If adding a small can of crushed pineapple to this recipe...are there any other adjustments needed?
