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!
