carrot cake

This carrot cake recipe is from one of those community project cookbooks - Favorite Recipes - Senior Citizens Organization, Blaine Lake, Saskatchewan. The name beside it is Mrs. Vera Bornyk. I got the book from Baba, Ernie's grandmother.

Carrot Cake

1½ cups vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
4 eggs
3 cups grated carrots
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup coconut
1 cup walnuts
2 tsp. cinnamon
(cherries or mixed fruit may be added)

Beat sugar with oil, add carrots. Beat in one egg at a time. Add dry ingredients, then add coconut and walnuts.

Pour into 13 x 9 inch or Bundt pan.

Bake at 350 until done (toothpick inserted in thickest part comes out clean – 45-60 minutes, if in Bundt pan, it may take a little longer).

Cream Cheese Icing

1 - 8 oz. package cream cheese - at room temperature
2 - 3 cups sifted icing sugar.
2 tsp. vanilla

Mix and spread on cooled cake.

Violet, thanks for posting the scrumptious recipe. My daughter's all-time favorite cake is CARROT CAKE. I'll be sure and give this one a try.

Vicki, yes, you must. I get compliments on it practically each time I make it. In fact, there are leftovers and I'm off to have a piece right now!
