My husband asked for my homemade carrot cake a few weeks ago and I couldn't find my recipe anywhere. I remembered a couple days ago that I had played musical cookbooks with my mom and son a year or so ago so today when I was at my mom's I asked here if I could look at the cookbook we had swapped and presto there's my carrot cake recipe.
This is an awesome recipe especially if you don't like pineapple, nuts, or raisins in your cake.
How to Make Carrot Cake
- Grease and flour a 13x9x2-in. baking pan (or two 9x1 1/2-in. round baking pans).
- In a mixer bowl combine the first 6 ingredients. Add next 3 ingredients, beating with electric mixer until combined. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Turn into pan(s).
- Bake in a 325 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes in a 13x9x2-in.pan or until done. (For two 9-inch layers, bake in 325 degree oven for 40 minutes or until done.)
- Cool on wire rack. (Remove layers from pans after cooling 10 minutes.) Cool well.
