Description

This cake is the moistest carrot cake I’ve ever made. I use pureed carrots and a finely shredded carrot to make for a dense and delicious cake. Top with cream cheese frosting. Irresistible!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CAKE:
  • 2-¼ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1-¾ cup Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ cups Raisins (optional)
  • ¼ cups Walnuts, Finely Chopped
  • 14 ounces, weight Canned Carrots, Pureed With Liquid, Or Carrot Baby Food
  • 1 cup Oil
  • 4 whole Large Eggs
  • 1 whole Large Carrot, Peeled And Finely Shredded (3/4-1 Cup)
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 8 ounces, fluid Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1 stick Butter, Softened
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Milk, Or More If Necessary

Preparation

For the cake:
1. Preheat the oven to 35o F. Coat two 9″ round baking pans or one 9 x 13″ baking pan with Pam non-stick baking spray. In a large size bowl combine all of the dry cake ingredients. Stir in the raisins and nuts if you’re using them. Set aside.
2. In a medium sized mixing bowl add the remaining cake ingredients and mix to blend.
3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet all at once. Mix until all dry ingredients are incorporated but do not over mix.
4. Pour the batter into the baking pan(s). For the two 9″ round pans bake for 30-35 minutes. For the 9 x 13″ bake for 45 minutes. For cupcakes, spray the paper liners with cooking spray and bake for 18-20 minutes. Test for doneness with a toothpick. Cool completely.

For the frosting:
1. With an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter until creamy. Add the vanilla and the powdered sugar. Mix on the lowest speed of the mixer and add the milk 1 teaspoon at a time to get a smooth spreading consistency.
2. Generously spread the frosting onto the cooled cake. Refrigerate until ready to serve and refrigerate leftovers (if any!)
