This is my "ONE BOWL WONDER!"
After you taste this recipe, you will never buy another box cake mix at the store.
Sure it is quick and easy to prepare...But flavor is what we are tasting here. And you control what goes into your cake!
When you try this cake recipe..
be ready for your taste buds to explode! It is so good.
I played with 3 recipes to bake this bar cake using my home canned carrots & my frozen bananas.

How to Make CARROT BANANA NUT BARS w/home canned carrots.

Step-by-Step

  1. Grease & flour a 13x9 inch baking pan.
    Pre-heat the oven to 350 F.
    Assemble all your ingredients.
  2. Mash your cooked carrots.
    Try not to use store bought carrots in a can.
    Frozen carrots are O.K. But cooked.
    You can even use baby food carrots...
    in a pinch.
    Add to bowl.
  3. Mash 2 ripe or frozen bananas...
    if you have them...
    The taste is the same.
    Add to bowl.
  4. Chop your nuts ...
    if you use them.
    I use walnuts.
    Add to bowl.
  5. Now the easy part!
    A one bowl wonder!..
    Put all!
    that's every ingredient together into
    a large bowl and mix well.
    Put in oven.
    Bake for 30-35 minutes.
    Check center of cake, to be sure it is done.
    Did you know you can use a stick of
    spaghetti for a tester??
    Cake is done when nothing sticks to the spaghetti!
    Thank my Grandma Walker, for this trick.
    You can even use a wooden chop stick.
  6. I like to use powdered sugar,
    sprinkled on top of cake.
    And a scoop of vanilla ice cream...
    goes good with this cake. YUM!
    *****Or a cream cheese frosting will do.
    This is your choice.
    Here is a nice "No GUILT CREAM CHEESE" recipe
    on JAP by:Noreen Dowell for you to try.
    If sweet Rose S. says it is good,
    then I will try it soon.
  7. ENJOY.
