Hands down, this is the best Carrot Cake Recipe!
Today I am so happy to share with you my recipe for this Classic Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.
This cake is super moist full of flavor and boasts a nutty bite with every taste. Walnuts and raisins along with carrots and pineapple give this Carrot Cake it’s rich flavor along with a fluffy yet moist texture.
When it comes to Carrot Cake I myself was never a big fan, oh no…..did she just says that? I know who doesn’t like Carrot Cake? Well for many years I was opposed; until I married my husband. One of his absolute favorite desserts after Strawberry Cake….. go figure is Carrot Cake. I guess the guy likes to get his daily serving of fruits and vegetables in the most unconventional way. Cake!
So as the years have rolled by his love for Carrot Cake has seemingly become mine as well. Funny how that works. When we were first married, I would find myself at our local grocery store bakery (more than I’d like to admit) searching for Carrot cake. They sell their cakes by the slice so on Friday nights all we’d have to do is give each other the look….. “Carrot Cake?” YOU KNOW IT. ” I’ll drive. Good Times.
With all that being said I knew I had to make Carrot Cake apart of my recipe collection. So today I am happy to share the steps to make the best tasting carrot cake you’ve ever had. Be prepared because when your friends and family taste this cake they WILL ask you for the recipe. Happy Baking!
The steps to making this cake couldn’t be any simpler.
You start by mixing your sugar, oil, and eggs together until the batter reaches a smooth consistency. Using oil in this particular recipe gives the cake added moisture.
Once you’ve mixed this sugar, oil, and eggs in a separate bowl sift your flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.
Next, combine your dry ingredients and wet ingredients a little at a time. Mix well.
