Personally, I'd just wrap it good with plastic wrap and leave it on the counter. After it's frosted, then I'd refrigerate it.

does anyone know if the recipe has to be doubled to make a double layer cake? and what is the carb count in the original form and would this change as a doble layer cake? going to make for my husband's birthday at the end of this month...we just started our LC eating lifestyle over after a month break for the holidays...any help would be greatly appreciated

The original recipe is made in a 9x13 pan so I don't see why you couldn't use two 8" cake pans instead and just pour 1/2 the batter in each one.

The whole recipe is 57.5 net carbs. So just divide by however many slices for an individual piece count.

I have made the original recipe in two 8" cake pans - worked perfectly.
This is a great recipe.

I have made this as a layer cake also, very good and very impressive with some chopped walnuts sprinkled on the top and pressed onto the sides of the cake. Delish!

I have made this carrot cake a few times, and it's always great. I wondered if this would also lend itself to zucchini, which it does. I replaced the carrots with 1 medium-size finely grated zuchinni and "upped" the spices a bit to taste to make zucchini spice cake. Yum! I haven't told the family it wasn't carrot, and they haven't noticed.

THIS is YUMMY! Worth the 4 cups of almond flour

I had my doubts that an all almond meal cake would be as great as this one. I have made my share of all sorts of low carb cakes, breakfast items, cookies, you name it. Some ok, most grainy. This tastes like the real deal carrot cake. Please know that I am a picky eater and don’t like diet tasting food. It has to be the sour cream that gave this cake a very moist crumb. The seasonings were dead on. I did add some cloves just because I always add cloves with ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon. I didn’t want to use 4 cups of Honeyville meal because I was so scared this would be like the other recipes (from so many different sites) that I have tried that people raved were so good but I am so glad I did.

Every person that ate this could not believe that it wasn’t traditional white flour. Thank you so much for sharing. Skeptic no more!!

After two successful cakes, I made this a third time, for Muggle family members for Easter. They loved it. I make it with a combo of powdered erythritol, Just Like Sugar Brown and liquid Better Stevia. And I add Cinnamon to the frosting. To die for.

Linda... did you only use these ingredients for the frosting or did you also use the cream cheese?

Grammy, the three sweeteners I listed I used in the cake. For the frosting, I used a combo of butter, cream cheese and confectioners Swerve.

Extra light olive oil (it's not flavored of olives at all), rice bran oil,coconut oil, something light-colored/flavored is best.
