Mame's Carrot Cake


Mame’s Carrot Cake Recipe

Mame’s Recipe from Eileen 1978
 
Sift together:
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1-1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
 
Mix:
2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups oil or [1-1/2 cups applesauce]
 
Add:
4 eggs or [1 cup Eggbeaters]
2 cups finely grated carrots
1-8 oz. can crushed pineapple [drained]
1/2 cup chopped nuts
3-1/2 oz. can flaked coconut
1 cup raisins [optional]

Bake at 350 degrees  in 3 - 9"round pans for 35- 40 minutes.

Cool cakes completely before frosting.
 
    
 
Frosting:
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla
1-8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 lb. confectioners’ sugar [about 3-1/2 cups]
 
      Beat all ingredients until smooth.

Mame's note: I have whipped heavy whipping cream to stiff peaks and folded it into the Cream Cheese Icing and it was awesome. Sorry I didn't measure, I just winged it; but the consistency is not meant for decorating as it is much too thin. But OH so YUMMO!!

  3. Hi, the baking instructions were displayed as symbols, so I copy n pasted it into notepad to find out what it said.. but I still thought I'd let you know that something may have gone wrong with the font or the html or something. Bye!

  4. ...as for the cake instructions, they are listed with the groups of ingredients - it's really a basic recipe...what is missing from the recipe is baking at 350° for about 35-40 minutes -depending on your oven...I also used 3-9" round pans/recipe...hope that helps...Mame

  5. Misbah...thank-you for the compliment on my flowers...the flowers are not really a specific flower, it's just something I created, but it does look kind of tropical...thanks, Mame
