    I suppose they do have a bit of a distinctive flavor, and I can see why they wouldn't belong on carrot cake in particular. I've never really understood that. I like almost any other sort of cake with walnuts or hazelnuts on it, though.

    I don't expect a lot of agreement with that, but I don't understand why it is that so many people dislike nuts.

    Thanks to Dyra for finding the green phoenix.

    Putting nuts in food is like taking something delicious and comforting and mixing some dirt in.

    I will agree with the arguments claiming nuts are an invalid food group. They ruin all the things.

    ... Shredded coconut too.

    I don't like most nuts, but saying the texture of them ruins a cake is telling me you don't understand how textures in cooking work.

    Most cakes are soft with a soft and sweet frosting. The crunchy texture of nuts is needed to combat the one overall texture (soft) that cakes have.

    But if there are nuts on the cake, grandma has to put her dentures in to eat it.

    Originally, red velvet cakes were very different, getting the red color (and different flavor) from Dutch-process cocoa, which is difficult (impossible?) to find anymore, so now most red velvet cakes just get the red dyed into them.

    Still, a good red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and crushed walnuts...
    And this is totally right and you can get Dutch-process cocoa just not in regular grocery stores.

    Why on EARTH would you want to combat a soft texture? I might be a little biased in liking soft things exclusively, but we aren't competing for Iron Chef and we don't need an array of textures in every dish just to feel fancy.

    You think Canada doesn't count? My country is so insignificant to you can only even think of it as an afterthought for the soul purpose of dismissing it? "Yeah, I went to Canada, but fuck Canada."

    I'm gonna have to disagree. Canada didn't exist as a country until 1867, so it couldn't have been America's hat before then.

    Carrot cake without chopped walnuts in is a heresy.

    Nuts are the master food. Chocolate bars vwithout nuts are boring but with nuts are amazing!

    And I agree with Omert on that last one, carrot cake alone is a heresy.
