This recipe combines my love of spice cake with carrot cake! You may wish to add raisins to this, but I prefer it without. Raisins vs. No Raisins is a big debate in our family. Almost as bad as the East Coast/West Coast Rap Drama of the 90′s. Which side are you on?
Recipe: Carrot Cake with a Kick
2 1/2 cups of sugar
1 1/2 cups of canola oil
4 eggs, separated
5 Tbsp of hot water
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1/4 tsp of salt
1 tsp of nutmeg
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of ground cloves
1 1/2 cup of grated carrots
1 cup of chopped pecans
- Beat the oil and sugar. Mix in the egg yolks then water. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then add slowly to the wet ingredients. Stir in carrots and pecans. Pour into a 9×13 greased and floured baking pan. Cook at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
Frost with Cream Cheese frosting.
You can use 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves if you have that on hand.
