Carrot Cake

This is a carrot cake recipe that was lovingly shared to us by a family friend. It's actually very easy to make. When I do this, I make my own variations, sometimes I'll toss some almonds, some raisins, some chocolate chips, some M&Ms, or if I want it to look fun for my son, I'll transform it into muffins. Enjoy!


4 eggs

2 cups sugar (preferably brown)

1 cup oil or apple sauce

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

2 cups flour

4 cups grated carrots

Gradually add sugar to oil. Beat well after each addition. In a separate bowl, beat eggs then add to oil mixture. Sift dry ingredients together. Gradually add dry mixture to the liquid mixture, Beating well at each addition. Add the carrots and raisin. Bake at 325C for 45 mins to 60 mins.
