Recipe type: cake
Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • Thrilled to try your own version of carrot cake? Prepare these ingredients:
  • • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • • 2 tsp baking soda
  • • ½ tsp salt
  • • 2 tsp powdered cinnamon
  • • 3 large eggs
  • • 2 cups sugar (I use muscovado, instead)
  • • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • • 1 cup buttermilk
  • • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • • 3 cups grated carrot
  • • 1 can crushed pineapple (drain before mixing)
  • • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • • 1 can flaked coconut
  • • ½ cup walnuts or hazelnuts
  • • ½ cup raisins
  • • ½ teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • • 1 piece orange or lemon (squeeze to make a juice)
Instructions
  1. Prepare 3 nine-inch thick cake pans and layer each with wax paper. Grease and set aside.
  2. Mix flour, sugar, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  3. Beat eggs and mix with the remaining, except for the last two, ingredients. If you are using an electric mixer, set the speed to medium.
  4. Blend the flour mixture, beating at low speed.
  5. Once the mixture becomes smooth, you’re now ready to pour it into cake pan.
  6. Preheat the oven at 350°/180C and wait for about 10 minutes before placing the cake pans in. It won’t take longer than 30 minutes to bake the cake. If you’re not sure, insert a toothpick in the middle and when it comes out clean, your cake is for icing.
Notes
You could top the layers with a buttermilk glaze and top with cream cheese frosting.
