Fearsome bakes Carrot Cake

It’s that time to post another cake on this here blog thingy.

I love Carrot Cake and this is super easy from scratch! It’s delish!

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F

Cake: 2 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 cup vegetable oil, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 4 eggs, 2 cups grated carrots (do not pack into cup), 1 cup raisins ( do not pack into cup).

Hand mix with spoon all dry ingredients then add oil, butter, eggs and vanilla…stir well, then add carrots and raisins…stir well.

Divide into two 9 inch greased & floured (I use bakers secret spray it’s easier) round pans and bake at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center.


Creme cheese icing: 4 ounces room temperature creme cheese, 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, 3 3/4 cup powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon Vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon salt, have just a little milk available to add for consistency.

Place all in bowl except milk, with a power mixer blend together on medium to higher speed…..then….add a few drops of milk at a time until spreadable. Be careful as too much milk will make it too runny and it won’t work…JUST until spreadable. Ice cake!

Iced and ready to go in fridge to hold for my Sunday morning group.

  1. Big fan of the stuff, one of my fiancees was a redhead (more carrot-top without the male dude reference) who also loved the stuff…every time I take a bite of Carrot Cake I think of Kathy.
    Show us your bearded baking best!

    • That’s the good thing with recipes, we can modify. Nuts are a good option as well as your suggestions. The original recipe I was given had 1 1/2 cups oil and no butter, I instictively knew it needed butter!

      • Of course it does…buttuh is the essence of deliciousness…buttuh makes everything (everyone?) taste bettuh…buttuh me beard and I’ll be bettuh (and added carrot cake is goooood, too)…LOL
