Carrot Cake with a Kick

#

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?

Carrot Cake with a Kick
 
Ingredients
  • 2½ cups of sugar
  • 1½ cups of canola oil
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 5 Tbsp of hot water
  • 2½ cups of flour
  • 1½ tsp of baking powder
  • ½ tsp of baking soda
  • ¼ tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of nutmeg
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of ground cloves
  • 1½ cup of grated carrots
  • 1 cup of chopped pecans
Instructions
  1. 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 9x13 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.
  2. Frost with Cream Cheese frosting.
Notes
You can use 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves if you have that on hand.
