    This was a delicious cake. I find conventional carrot cake too cloyingly sweet and a bit boring. This is spectacular with its complex addition of figs and ginger and such. Quite healthy for such a rich, satisfying dessert. I've made it several times now. The last couple times, I was lazy and just drizzled it with confectioners sugar icing and was quite happy.

    This cake tastes great. I did change things a little bit. I blended the wet ingredients before I added the carrots. The cake was becoming too packed with wet ingredients initially. I prefer cakes that are smooth. I had a little bit of sweetness with agave nectar. I added one teaspoon of that. I used graham flour instead of all purpose flour. This added some nice fiber. I also added a pinch of salt. I had one big cake mold. Chuck had 2 small cake molds. It took me about 2.5 hours of steaming before the cake set. The batter tasted terrible when I tasted it before putting in the oven. Once out of the oven and set, everything tasted great. I did not try the frosting. You could not tell this cake is actually healthy for you.
