Nancy, I bake an awesome carrot cake! God the recipe from ALLRECIPES. Use a 13x9x2 pan and cake gets a bit hard on the end. What can I do about this?

Try using Bake Even Strips on the outside of your pan. This helps the cake to bake more evenly because they slow down the cooking of the sides of the cake. It will help keep the ends more moist.
