Omitting the raisins from the carrot cake?

Is it possible to just omit the raisins without adjusting the quantity of the other ingredients? Not fond of raisins and cannot have nuts.

Thanks, sounds yummy but my picky kids won't eat those either. Will be a plain version for us.

Chopped pitted dates are a great substitute for raisins in carrot cake. I also like to add some chopped crystallized ginger!

Perfect, thanks!

You can omit practically anything from carrot cake (except the carrots) and it will be just fine.

You are most welcome. When I take orders for carrot cake, it is not at all unusual for requests to omit something that someone is allergic, sensitive to, or simply doesn't like. The cake always survives.
