Seriously Simple and Crazy Good Carrot Cake
Our family loves this recipe!! We always have the ingredients in the house, it tastes soooooo good, really impresses a crowd, and is so easy to make. Seriously, we dump all of the cake ingredients into one bowl, turn the mixer on, and you’ve got the cake batter. No sifting, no separating… just dump and let the mixer do the work.
We sometimes cheat with the frosting. There are some pretty yummy tasting pre-made cream cheese frostings. If you happen to have a can of vanilla frosting and cream cheese in your refrigerator, just blend the two together. Get fancy by sprinkling walnuts and/or coconut on top or keep it simple. This is even delicious without frosting!
2 cups sugar
1 1/3 cup oil (or can replace with applesauce)
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp cinnamon
4 cups grated carrots
¾ cup chopped walnuts
4 oz. stick of butter
8 oz package of cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat over to 350 degrees.
For cake: combine sugar, eggs, oil, flour, soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, grated carrots, and chopped nuts. Pour into a 13×9 inch greased pan and bake for 40 minutes. Or I love bundt cakes… pour batter into a floured and greased bundt cake pan and back for approximate 50-60 mintues (I find the bundt cake cooking times can vary drastically so check periodically.)
For frosting: blend butter and cream cheese. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Frost. Serve. Eat.
This recipe is awesome for any brunch, birthday celebration, Easter Sunday, or just because you deserve a fabulous slice of carrot cake at the end of the day!
