Received this recipe from someone at a family BBQ about 50 years ago and have been making it ever since. It's moist. I don't use the frosting but sometimes sprinkle with powdered sugar.

How to Make Carrot Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
    spread in a 9x13 greased pan.
  • 2Bake in 350 degree oven about 45-50 minutes. (I usually check at 45 minutes and then every 5 minutes...sometimes it takes 50-60 minutes depending on your oven)

    Then add nuts and pineapple. (this frosting recipe came with the cake recipe, but I don't use it.)
