Finally giving up my carrot cake recipe

post #1 of 65
Thread Starter 

i would appreciate feedback form anyone who tries it.

 

4 eggs

3/4 c oil

1/2 c applesauce

3 c grated carrots

1 c sugar

1c brown sugar

2c flour

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

3 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

3 tsp vanilla

 

optional..chopped pecans or walnuts and dried cranberries

 

Beat eggs, oil, applesauce, sugar and vanilla

Mix dry ingredients

Mix wet mix and dry mix together then add carrots and 1/4c chopped nuts

Stir in carrots

 

grease and flour 2 8" tins, fill and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes (I never bake by time but start checking at 30 min for doneness)

 

Frost with cream cheese frosting and press dried cranberries and nuts into sides of frosting. This really makes the cake more attractive and really complements the flavor without detracting from the tradiotnal carrot cake.

This looks almost identical to one I use, except I don't add the applesauce, and mine has shredded coconut.  Along with nuts.  I've gotten thumbs up for it.

Cake flour or All Purpose?

If it don't make dollars, then it doesn't make sense ;)

That is the same recipe I use but I add 1tsp of ground ginger. It add nicely to the spice blend. It is our annual "Easter the Bunny Birthday Cake".
