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!!!

How to Make Oh No!! Another Carrot Cake Recipe!!!

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350*
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Mix carrots, oil, pineapple, eggs and hot water in a small bowl.
  4. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients, mixing until smooth. Stir in walnuts and raisins.
  5. Pour into greased and floured 9-inch cake pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Remove from pan and cool completely. Frost with icing.
  6. ICING: Beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Gradually add sugar to desired consistency.
  7. I am precise with most of these ingredients, but I will add a little more than a cup of carrots...and just a pinch more of the spices.... Ok, maybe a few more walnuts and raisins too! Works great if you just follow the recipe too!
