I looked at some of the recipes here and they all look good... BUT!! I think I will stick to this one. It's the best carrot cake I have ever had... hands down...ENJOY!!

I appreciate that Marie made this and put a picture of it on here. I don't do anything but frost it... no decorations, so those are optional according to your artistic abilities!!!

I have doubled this, but I think it works better in a smaller pan. If you need a bigger cake... make 2!!!

  • 1Preheat oven to 350*
  • 2Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • 3Mix carrots, oil, pineapple, eggs and hot water in a small bowl.
  • 4Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients, mixing until smooth. Stir in walnuts and raisins.

  • 6ICING: Beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Gradually add sugar to desired consistency.
