Joan's Story

You can add 1/2 cup of raisins in step 5 if you like raisins.
To make carrot decorations: most stores sell tubes of green and orange icing, as well as pastry tips that fit right on the tube.

This carrot cake is so moist and flavorful, with tiny bits of real fresh carrots that no box of cake mix can ever even hope to come close to replicating. Just don't let a rabbit anywhere near it!

Ingredients

1 1/2 c
baby carrots
1 c
vegetable oil
1 1/3 c
sugar
3 large
eggs(i use ener-g egg replacer)
1 1/3 c
flour
1 1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/4 tsp
salt
1 tsp
rounded teaspoon cinnamon
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1
batch of vegan cream cheese frosting

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place carrots in master prep pitcher. secure top and pulse for 10 seconds, until carrots are grated into tiny pieces. Remove carrots and set aside.
2
place vegetable oil, sugar, and eggs in master prep pitcher. Secure top and pulse for 10 seconds, until combined and frothy.
3
Add flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla extract to the sugar mixture in pitcher and re-secure the top. Pulse for 10 seconds until well combined and free of lumps.
4
Carefully remove blades from pitcher and stir in grated carrots with a long spoon. Pour finished cake batter into two, greased and floured 8 inch cake pans. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
5
Let cool for at least 1 hour. Use a bread knife to slice off each half of the cake's rounded tops for a perfectly flat, bakery style cake. Frost each top with cream cheese frosting, and then flip one on top of the other to let the frosting of each half glue the cake together. Frost the outside of the cake, decorate and serve.

Excellent cake! My neighbor was over for tea and she watched me put this together and made frosting. I think she stayed longer just so she could lick the beaters from the frosting!
